TRAINING: A typical day of training hasn't changed much over the years. Split the day up between morning and evening training, making sure I'm getting training in every area. I’m continuing to build on my skill base so that I'm bringing new things to the table each and every fight. The one variable you can control is your conditioning, so I’m always making sure I'm in shape and prepared to fight 15 minutes non-stop.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training in 1999 to prove to myself and to others that I belong in the UFC.
What ranks and titles have you held? Maximum Fighting - # 1 AFC LHW Champ
Do you have any heroes? Lance Armstrong and Randy Couture
What is your favorite technique? You will see it on April 30th.
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It’s fulfilling my dream, but I want to win in the UFC.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I did go to college and have a degree in criminology.
What was your job before you started fighting? I was a Correctional Officer, but I fight full-time now.
