Biography

 
Thoughts on opponent, Trevin Giles? Tough

When and why did you start training for fighting? I had just finished my last season of college football and was looking to stay active and compete. My buddy asked if I wanted to try BJJ, and after my first day, Ben Rothwell approached me and said, “Your’re coming to the fight team.” I instantly fell in love with the sport. Shortly after turning professional I quit my job as a sixth grade teacher and began training full-time.

What ranks and titles have you held? Purple belt in BJJ, XFO and FFC middleweight title, Battle of the Boarders KO of the Night. 

Do you have any heroes? The better version of myself, something I am always striving to be.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? The beginning of a dream come true.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Yes, I have a bachelor’s degree with a major in social sciences and a double minor in geography and secondary education.

What was your job before you started fighting? Sixth grade social studies teacher
