Biography

TRAINING: Depending on the day we will have three different training sessions. In the morning I will do a technical training session such as boxing pad work and drills. After boxing I will go into my strength and conditioning for about an hour. Our evening practice is our pro practice, which consists of sparring or live goes in wrestling / jiu jitsu, etc.

Thoughts on opponent, Ovince Saint Preux? Ovince is a big, athletic fighter who is well-rounded. He has many stoppages on the ground and is also well-versed in the striking department.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I was a two-time Division I All American and a three-time Pac 10 champion in wrestling at Arizona State University.  After graduating I pursued a career in business, I immediately missed competition and the ups and downs of being an athlete. I helped out a friend prepare for a fight and fell in love with the sport. I began training with my wrestling partner and good friend CB Dollaway at Arizona Combat Sports and really enjoyed getting back into the competitive nature. I had my first fight and that just reassured me that this is what I wanted to do.

What titles have you held?  2X Div I All American, 3X Pac 10 Champion, 9-0 pro MMA record.

Do you have any heroes? My parents

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Fighting in the UFC is my ultimate goal. It is the major league of MMA and I have worked hard throughout my amateur wrestling career and my MMA career to get where I am at today. I grew up watching the UFC and couldn’t be happier to have this opportunity with the UFC.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I graduated from Arizona State University, with a BS in Justice & Social Inquiry and minor in Business.

What was your job before you started fighting? I was in sales and marketing for a Telecommunication company.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? 2X Div I All American, 3X Pac 10 Champion, 2X high school state champion, 2001 Nevada defensive player of the year/football.

•    Three wins by submission, seven by KO
