When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training at a young age in Calgary, Alberta, fell in love with jiu-jitsu and shortly after high school started taking competing a little bit more serious. I moved away and told my parents one day I’m gonna be in the UFC.
What ranks and titles have you held? Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt under Jorge Britto. I also own several titles in various organizations, most notably the TKO flyweight title as well as the HAVOC FC flyweight title, WXC flyweight title, and Prodigy bantamweight title.
Do you have any heroes? My pops is my hero. If it wasn’t for him, martial arts would have been a much different story. His out of the box way of thinking is what’s allowed me to get so creative in the ring.
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? I feel like it’s a long time coming and I’ve worked really hard to get to the spot, but that being said, now that I’m here the game is changed so I’m ready for the ride.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? University of Hard Knocks with a PHD in A.S.S Kicking.
Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? Numerous gold medals for grappling
