Biography

TRAINING: At this point in my career I have found a training schedule / diet and recovery plan that works for me, but we're always tweaking the approach. Each week is a little different, depending on the stage of the training camp. Sparring, technical training, S&C and recovery depending on the day. I've always kept up with my wrestling training in a college wrestling room. This keeps me sharp and my intensity high.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training in June of 2009. I started fighting because a few fighters that I know kept mentioning how good I would be due to my aggressive wrestling style, so after a while, I decided to give it a try and haven’t looked back.

Do you have any heroes? My father Arnoldo Bermudez, Travis Pastrana, Urjiah Faber, and Rob Dyrdek. The reason why I look up to all these guys is because they are entrepreneurs.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Anything I do I don’t like to half ass it, so if I am going fight MMA, I want to fight the best.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I attended Bloomsburg University. I was an Anthropology major and minored in Studio Arts.

What was your job before you started fighting? I worked two jobs, landscaping and loading package cars at UPS.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? I was a Freestyle All American and was ranked in the top 25 in NCAA Div 1 Wrestling.

Specific accomplishments in pro competition? Semi-Finalist in Shine Fights Grand Prix.

Ranks in any martial arts styles: I hold a white belt in every martial art style.

Favorite grappling technique: Ground and Pound

Favorite Striking technique: Left hook

  • Team Miller member on TUF 14
  • Four wins by KO, four by submission (1 RNC, 3 guillotine)
  • Pro since 2009
  • Defeated UFC vet Shannon Gugerty in September of 2010; lost to Drew Fickett that same night in tournament.
  • Has won nine of his last 15; on four fight losing streak
