What ranks and titles have you held? None

What is your favorite technique? Stand and bang
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It’s a dream come true. To be part of this is one thing but to actually fight for them is crazy. When I started fighting I didn't even think I would get close. And after every fight, fans would say ‘man, can't wait to see you in the UFC.’ I love the sport and the fans, and God blessed me, so now I'm taking it in and working hard to be at the top.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Currently attending - attempting bachelors.
