Biography

When and why did you start training for fighting? When I first saw Ultimate Fighting I was really, really into it, and it was just amazing how these amazing athletes could just take their bodies to the limit.  I wanted to be one of those guys and I said ‘I can be one of those guys, I can do it.’  The mind can make your body do anything.  So I started training three years ago after wrestling my first year in college.  I thought that wrestling wasn’t for me anymore, I started doing some amateur MMA events and realized that this is what I want to do.

Specific accomplishments in pro competition?
Two time world champion for the IFC in the 155lb weight class and 170lb weight class.

Favorite grappling technique:
Wrestling and jiu-jitsu

Favorite Striking technique:
Muay Thai, boxing

Do you have any heroes?
Outside the fight world, it’s my mom, Jo Ramirez.  I’m adopted and she’s my guardian angel.  She does a lot for me.  In the fight world, Dave Menne has been one of my heroes as a person and as a trainer for the longest time.  He’s the one who got me to where I’m at today, training-wise.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?
It means the world and it’s a dream come true.  It’s been a crazy ride for me, and I’m living a dream.  It’s one of the goals I set that I thought I’d never accomplish, and now it’s here and I want to make the best of it and conquer it.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn?
I have one more year left in Augsburg college and I’m majoring in Business Management.

What was your job before you started fighting?
I’m a full-time student but I also did construction work, and I used to be a bouncer.
