Biography

TRAINING: Wake up, either strength and conditioning in the morning or I drill techniques with a partner/coach. Come home, eat a big brunch, rest up and in the evening I go to the MMA gym to get my hard rounds. I put in about 4-5 hours a day in the gym as well as study a lot of film throughout the day.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I was wrestling in college and I was noticing many high-level wrestlers doing extraordinarily well in the sport. I started watching and becoming a fan. After my freshman year of wrestling in college, a buddy of mine asked if I was interested in taking a MMA fight. I said yes and that same day we went out to Lansing, Michigan and I fought. From that moment, I became hooked and have been competing since then. That was in 2010.

What ranks and titles have you held? None

Do you have any heroes? My brothers

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It has been a dream of mine to become a world champion. I want to fight the very best in the entire world and only in the UFC can I fight the absolute best. I gave up and sacrificed a tremendous amount for this opportunity, so to be able to compete in the UFC is huge for me. There is nothing else in the world I should be doing than fighting for the premier organization in the world. This opportunity means everything to me.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to college at Michigan State University, where I received a bachelor’s degree in Sociology

What was your job before you started fighting? I was a bouncer at a nightclub and a kickboxing/fitness instructor.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? I was 14-0 as an amateur fighter and held three amateur titles.

Ranks in any martial arts styles: Two-stripe blue belt in Jiu-Jitsu, Division I Big Ten collegiate wrestler
