Biography

TRAINING: Sparing or wrestling in my morning sessions. Strength and conditioning with drilling in the evening.
 
When and why did you start training for fighting? I wrestled in high school and when I finished playing football, I still needed the competition. So it seemed like a good outlet. I started and competed once and I fell in love with it.

What ranks and titles have you held? None

Do you have any heroes? One of my all-time favorite fighters is Fedor Emelianenko. He’s a mean, gritty fighter

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?
I’m totally excited about it. It’s a thrill, and when you get into this sport, this is the tier everyone’s trying to get to. It’s a great honor and I’m excited to be a part of it.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? LSU. Graduated with a Kinesiology – human movement degree and a chemistry degree.

What was your job before you started fighting? Played football. Won two national titles with LSU
