Biography

TRAINING: I run in the morning and then spar boxing in the afternoon. At night I either grapple or kickbox.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training because I was having problems with some people who were bigger physically than I was. When I saw the UFC, I was impressed and wanted to some day be able to perform like those fighters.

What ranks and titles have you held? Black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Cesar Gracie. WEC welterweight champ/ IFC welterweight champ / Strikeforce welterweight champion

Do you have any heroes? Royce Gracie.

What is your favorite technique? Triangle choke.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?
It is a dream fulfilled.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No college.

What was your job before you started fighting? I was a student.
