Biography

TRAINING: I train about twice a day. I normally sleep in super late so right when I wake up I am heading to the gym.  After my first session I hit up my second training session back at the house on my computer, playing video games competitively. I'll relax most of the afternoon then at early evening I will go to the gym and hit my second training session.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training when I was around 20 years old. I was big PRIDE guy and I wanted a piece of that glory.

What ranks and titles have you held? Victory Fighting Championship lightweight champion

Do you have any heroes? I have never really been able to answer that and my answer is normally no. If I had to answer right now, Neil Degrasse Tyson and Richard Dawkins.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means the last seven years haven't been a waste of time. It validates everything I have been working towards.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I attended Kansas State University for two years for human nutrition. I realized I knew more than all my nutrition teachers so I thought, ‘why am I wasting my money?’

What was your job before you started fighting? Librarian

Specific accomplishments in pro competition?
I took a 50-2 pro kickboxer to a decision in Poland on two weeks’ notice for my first kickboxing match.
