When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training in 2010 after getting in a pretty bad street fight. I fell in love with all the different aspects of MMA. 

What ranks and titles have you held? Currently #1 ranked featherweight in Florida and NY. Two amateur titles, two pro titles - Strike Off featherweight title, King of the Cage lightweight title 

Do you have any heroes? No, but I have been listening to a lot of David Goggins and that dude is the man. My dad is pretty cool, too. 

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means a 10-year goal is achieved and the start of my biggest goal of being a world champion.  It means a lot of hard work and time put in has finally paid off. 

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Yes, I went to Niagara County Community College and got my associates degree in Business. 

What was your job before you started fighting? A bunch of different jobs - a lot of serving jobs in restaurants, which I hated.
