Biography

TRAINING:  In the gym around 9am, get a quick lift in for about an hour, and then work on technique and cardio.  I come back at night and spar and follow up with conditioning. 

When and why did you start training for fighting?  I started in the Spring of 2005. I wasn’t ready to quit competing in sports after I was done with college football and wrestling.  Also, my dream was always to become a professional athlete

What ranks and titles have you held?  I was the welterweight champ in a show in Rochester, MN

Do you have any heroes? My parents, Vince Lombardi, and Randy Spring

What is your favorite technique? Slamming
