• Pro since 2016

• One win by KO

• Origin of nickname: “This name originated from my forefathers, who happened to be hunters. They led wild animals into ambushes. Due to their brave, fierce and violent behavior I decided to go by ‘Savage.’”

• Mini-bio – “I stopped college due to my mother being diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease in 2014. I had to get at least two jobs to help support her and my older brother, who suffers from autism. Life has been one great journey so far, and now being able to fight in the UFC would help me pay off my mother’s medical bills even faster. I thank God for bringing me this far.”
