Biography

TRAINING: The average day of training involves about an hour to an hour and a half of MMA grappling in the AM. Followed by Focus Mitts in the afternoon and ending with strength and conditioning in the evening. I've been sparring 2 to 3 times a week as well. I am ... The MENACE !

Thoughts on opponent, Pablo Garza?
Pablo Garza is tall for the featherweight division. He goes for bigger moves such as flying knees from his feet and has pretty good Jiu Jitsu. I am feeling very confident going into this fight. My striking has improved since my fight against Diego. My grappling has improved as well.

When and why did you start training for fighting?
I started training in June of 2009.  I started fighting because a few fighters that I know kept mentioning how good I would be due to my aggressive wrestling style, so after a while, I decided to give it a try and haven’t looked back.

What ranks and titles have you held? None

Do you have any heroes? My father Arnoldo Bermudez, Travis Pastrana, Urjiah Faber, and Rob Dyrdek.  The reason why I look up to all these guys is because they are entrepreneurs.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Anything I do I don’t like to half ass it, so if I am going fight MMA, I want to fight the best.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I attended Bloomsburg University. I was an Anthropology major and minored in Studio Arts.

What was your job before you started fighting? I worked two jobs, landscaping and loading package cars at UPS.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? I was a Freestyle All American and was ranked in the top 25 in NCAA Div 1 Wrestling.

Specific accomplishments in pro competition? Semi-Finalist in Shine Fights Grand Prix.

Ranks in any martial arts styles: I hold a white belt in every martial art style.

Favorite grappling technique: Ground and Pound

Favorite Striking technique: Left hook.

•    Team Miller member on TUF 14

•    Three wins by KO, two by submission

•    Pro since 2009
