When and why did you start training for fighting? Started training at 14. I was getting bullied as a kid, so I started training for self-defense but fell in love with the sport.  

Do you have any heroes? Both of my parents are my heroes - I owe everything to them. I wouldn’t be where I am without them. 

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It would mean everything to me. It’s a dream I’ve been pursuing since I was a kid.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Went to college for radiology for two years but haven’t finished 

What was your job before you started fighting? Burying internet lines for an internet company with my dad.
