Biography

TRAINING: I typically train 2 to 3 times a day, 6 days a week. Sometimes even 4 times. I’m either doing conditioning with Ian Omalza, hitting mitts with Ray Sefo, doing jits with Sonny Nohara and Rob Drysdale, or pro practice with my team at Xtreme Couture.

Thoughts on opponent, Dustin Jacoby?
I don't know much about Dustin, but I know he's young and hungry like myself. So far he's put together an impressive record. But like my initial scheduled opponent, he's just another man standing in my path to UFC greatness. I feel confident in myself, and my training, and I feel I will come out victorious.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started fighting in 2007 because fighting is fun.

What ranks and titles have you held? None

Do you have any heroes? My Mom and King Leonidas from Sparta

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means everything to me. It's a dream come true.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? N/A

What was your job before you started fighting? Ramp agent

•    Team Liddell member on TUF11

•    Three wins by TKO, two by submission

•    Has finished all but one of his pro wins

•    Star linebacker in high school
