Thoughts on opponent, Michael Bisping? I'm super excited to be facing a legend like Bisping.  He is and has been one of the greatest middleweights in UFC history.  I respect him as a fighter. I plan on protecting my groin, eyes, and watching for illegal strikes.  I plan on out wrestling him, and breaking him takedown by takedown.


When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training martial arts when I was in grade school. I began with Karate, but then quickly migrated to Japanese Jiu-Jistu. I trained in that until the end of high-school, when I moved to the Pit and started training for MMA.

What ranks and titles have you held? Special Forces senior weapons sergeant

Do you have any heroes? Every soldier in Afghanistan right now, and Brian Stann

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? I always look at my opponent. I have fought in a lot of places for a lot of different promotions. It always comes down to who is standing across from me on the other side of the cage.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to Columbia College, and have a BA in criminal justice

What was your job before you started fighting? Ranger qualified Special Forces sniper.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? Grapplers Quest 3 light heavyweight champion, 3X Modern Army Combatives light heavyweight champion.

Specific accomplishments in pro competition? Extreme Challenge 50 tournament champion, Strikeforce middleweight contender.

Ranks in any martial arts styles: Black belt in MACP (modern army combative), Black belt in Japanese Jiu-Jitsu
