TRAINING: I usually train three times a day when I have a fight coming up - One hard grappling / sparring session, a technique session and a cardio session.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training for MMA when I was 17. I had no direction or goals and I fell in love with the sport. It gave me a sense of motivation and fueled me to make myself better every day.

What ranks and titles have you held? I am a two-time amateur champion. As a pro, I was the Duelo De Giagantes lightweight champion in Mexcio and the featherweight champion for Cage Fury Fighting Championship.

Do you have any heroes? My hero is my AA sponsor Tommy.

What was your job before you started fighting? I held odd jobs as a kid; never had a real job.

Ranks in any martial arts styles: Brown Belt in BJJ under John Danaher.

Favorite grappling technique: BJJ

Favorite Striking technique: Boxing
