When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training and had my first boxing match when I was eight years old. Fighting was the first thing I ever fell in love with. 

What ranks and titles have you held? Golden Gloves champion. Two-stripe BJJ blue belt 

Do you have any heroes? Muhammad Ali 

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Everything! A dream come true. Not only do I love fighting, but I love the UFC. I know the entire history of the company and there’s no other promotion I’m interested in fighting for. 

What was your job before you started fighting? I’ve never had a real 9-5 job. I’ve done small odd jobs here and there and have taught some boxing classes, but that’s it.

Favorite grappling technique: Armbar
