What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It what it's all about.  It’s why I started training to fight. It means the work I've put in is paying off, but it's not good enough to just make it - I want the title. That's when I'll be happy.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Missouri Valley College - Exercise Science

What was your job before you started fighting? Personal Trainer
