TRAINING: Training is a grind, but this camp I drilled more techniques instead of just sparring a lot. I also supplemented with a lot more strength and conditioning to make up for the not sparring as much.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training MMA because I love it. It gives me a chance to make a living doing something I have always loved to do. Competition is the greatest motivator for me and to get paid for it, that is rad.
What ranks and titles have you held? I hold the ROF title at 145
Do you have any heroes? I have many people who have helped mold me into the Fighter/Father I am today. I thank them all, especially my father.
What is your favorite technique? I enjoy takedowns and dirty boxing, both on my feet and on the ground, but I will take victory no matter how I secure it. I’m going to find a way to win.
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It's an opportunity to keep fighting and beating the best bantamweights in the world.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I earned a Bachelors degree in Psychology.
What was your job before you started fighting? I was and currently am the Marketing Director for a Home Health company.
