When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training long ago, around 2000, and I noticed I was good in kickboxing competitions. Then I started looking for something tougher, and MMA was calling and I knew it was my kind of sport.

What ranks and titles have you held? I don’t hold any titles or official ranks because in Argentina there are no big leagues or a big franchise.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means achieving an impossible dream. When I started out, my friends told me it
was going to be impossible to get to fight in the UFC, yet with a lot of sacrifice, here I am.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Yes, I am a physical education professor.

What was your job before you started fighting? I was a personal trainer and worked at gyms

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? When I was an amateur, I took part in a competition named “Super 8.” At first I wasn’t accepted because they only needed 8 fighters to dispute a title, but when one of them got injured I jumped in and I ended up defeating all of the Super 8 contestants.

Specific accomplishments in pro competition? I fought in Brazil against Rafael Dias, and I knocked him out in 11 seconds.
