Q & A

When and why did you start training for fighting? I have done martial arts since I was 12. I was always super competitive and hated losing. Once MMA picked up it was a matter of time before I got involved.

What ranks and titles have you held? CFFC Lightweight champion. 2nd degree black belt in taekwondo, purple belt in BJJ. 

Do you have any heroes? My family.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means I get to really start my career. In my opinion I'm 0-0 now. I didn't make it yet. This is just a baby step.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Yes. University of the Arts. I actually went to acting school!

What was your job before you started fighting? Bouncing, bartending, stuff like that.
Favorite grappling technique: The kind where you get back up!
Favorite Striking technique: Spinning back kick
