Q&A

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It would be the first real step in realizing my dream.  I want to be remembered forever. The UFC is where I can make that happen.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to the University of Cincinnati for contractual law.  I decided to pursue fighting full-time instead.
