Biography

TRAINING: I've been focusing on my grappling this camp. I've had a lot of world champion grapplers come in and I’m getting tons of rounds in.

Thoughts on opponent, Carlos Diego Ferreira?
He’s a dangerous threat. He's not well-known, but he's undefeated and a former Legacy champ. He can be a great fighter but he only has 10 fights. I have more fights in the UFC, including my TUF fights. He's an undersized 55er and I can put it on him with my experience and size.

When and why did you start training for fighting?
I started around 2008, after I was done wrestling in college. I started because I felt I wasn’t done competing yet. I still had the drive and love of competition in me and I needed to find an outlet.

What ranks and titles have you held? I have been ranked in the world before, but nothing of any significance

Do you have any heroes? Anyone who does what they love with passion and full heartily. If I meet some Joe Schmoe and they go after their dreams with everything inside of them, that is my hero.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means I'm one step closer to my ultimate goal. All the hard work and sacrifice has paid off and I get to pursue my dreams.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Utah Valley University in Orem, UT. Earned my degree in business marketing.

What was your job before you started fighting? Security at a bar

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? Division 1 wrestler
