What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means a 10-year goal is achieved and the start of my biggest goal of being a world champion.  It means a lot of hard work and time put in has finally paid off.

What was your job before you started fighting? A bunch of different jobs - a lot of serving jobs in restaurants, which I hated.
