When and why did you start fighting?
"I started training and fighting in Hilo, Hawaii. I won all my fights easily against local competition. It was only when I started fighting in Super Brawl that I really took the game seriously. BJ and all my training partners have really sacrificed themselves to make me a better fighter. I am in debt to them all."
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?
"Not only am I fighting for myself, but for all my fellow Hawaiian fighters and fans. We do not always get the respect we deserve. I am carrying the weight of all Hawaiian fighters and fans on my shoulders when I step into the Octagon. And I will fight till my last breath to not let them down."
Do you have any heroes?
"Both Egan Inoue and BJ Penn are heroes to me."
What is your biggest weapon in a fight?
What is your favorite technique?
"No one technique. I just really enjoy inflicting damage."
