Biography

TRAINING: My typical day of training involves strength and conditioning in the morning and grappling in the evening. Then I teach two classes before finishing my day with some standup training.  

When and why did you start training for fighting? I always thought I was a fighter, but it wasn't until I started training that I realized I didn't know anything. I began doing BJJ when The LAB first opened in 2007 to lose weight and get in shape because I thought it was something like wrestling, and it is in its own way.
 
What ranks and titles have you held? 2005 runner up for state wrestling tournament in Arizona
 
Do you have any heroes? My mom, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steve Prefontaine, and my old wrestling coach Steve Linscum
 
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means I finally made it to the NFL, the NBA, the MLB. I made it to the big leagues.
 
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No
 
What was your job before you started fighting? There was a handful
 
Favorite grappling technique: Armbar
