Q&A

When and why did you start training for fighting? At the age of 14. I’ve always been fighting on the streets and stuff and I always wanted to get into it, but my parents never had the financial means to put me in a martial arts school. So I saw my brother on the wrestling team, and it was basically for free in high school, so I decided to join him. I wanted to find an outlet.
Do you have any heroes? Bruce Lee
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? A dream come true
What was your job before you started fighting? A little bit of everything
Favorite grappling technique: triangle
Favorite Striking technique: shi ryu ken
