TRAINING: I train two or three times a day, have been doing so for the last three months straight because of coaching the Ultimate Fighter and helping Urijah Faber get ready for his title fight. Lots of sparring- Kickboxing, Boxing and MMA, as well as morning wrestling or BJJ and Evening strength and conditioning.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training two years ago after I graduated college and my college wrestling career was over. I didn’t reach all my goals in wrestling and wasn’t done competing, so, being a well rounded athlete, I thought I could be good at fighting and I gave it a shot.

Do you have any heroes? No
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It’s one step closer to what I have been working for in the last two years.

What was your job before you started fighting? Student
