Q & A

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training ten years ago in 2009 in order to educate myself on fighting. If the situation ever presented itself in the future, I would be prepared. My head coach saw I was a natural and here we are.

Do you have any heroes? My dad and head coach

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Fighting in the UFC means a lot to me. It’s all I’ve focused on since my first amateur fight.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No

What was your job before you started fighting? I worked as a truck driver for a local dairy called Alpenrose.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? Two-time FCFF amateur champion
