Q & A

TRAINING: I trained the same for this camp as I have every other camp. Morning, noon and night, I'm getting ready for this.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training about three fights into my professional career. I started training because I didn't want to suffer my first loss.

What ranks and titles have you held? Madtown Throwdown and MFC champion

Do you have any heroes? My parents are my heroes because they have sacrificed much so I could take every opportunity that was presented to me.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? The UFC is the biggest organization in the world. They determine who the best in the world is and now I get to prove that what they think about me is true.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I graduated from Lakeland College with a degree in business management.

What was your job before you started fighting? Before fighting my job was being a student.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? I won the King of the Cage heavyweight tournament held at Lake of the Torches Casino. That was three fights in one night and I won a spot on their next professional card.

Specific accomplishments in pro competition? The biggest accomplishment I have had in my professional career is my MFC title. I also defended that title once so that makes the title officially mine.

Ranks in any martial arts styles: I'm a black belt in wrestling and a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. I currently hold a black belt in Sudoku.

Favorite grappling technique: My favorite grappling technique is the rock bottom.

Favorite striking technique: My favorite striking technique is the punch to the face.
