TRAINING: I train 2-3 times a day depending on what day it is. Every day is a different day of drills, from wrestling, grappling, boxing, conditioning, sparring and MMA striking. I follow whatever schedule my coach has for me that day.

When and why did you start training for fighting? Life just moved me into the direction of MMA.

 
What ranks and titles have you held? Lightweight champion of my previous promotion.
 
Do you have any heroes? No heroes, but I look up to a handful of good people and try to take positive things from them.
 
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? A new beginning to reach a goal that I set for myself at the start of my career.
 
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? N/A
 
What was your job before you started fighting? The last job I had was working at PeaPod grocery delivery company.
