When and why did you start training for fighting? In 2015, I came out to help DC for some wrestling since I was wrestling full-time. I was going to be a college wrestling coach, but I’ve always been a scrapper, so when I came out here to train, they threw some gloves on me on the days when they weren’t wrestling and I would throw bombs at people. Bob Cook told DC, ‘We’re gonna sign this dude.’ I sat down and talked to DC about it and he said ‘I think you’re gonna be really successful and make a lot of money. You should move out here.’ And here I am.

What ranks and titles have you held? Two-time college National champion, three-time college All-American, and I was on the U.S. National team for freestyle wrestling.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means everything, but this is where I belong, this is where I’ve always belonged and this is what I think my life was truly meant to be. I’m very, very grateful, but I know I belong here.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Lindenwood University

What was your job before you started fighting? I wrestled full-time
