Biography

TRAINING: I train three times per day. 11am-12pm strength and conditioning, 2-4pm wrestling and BJJ, 8-10pm striking.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I used to watch my uncle Francisco Grasso training and teaching. My dad taught me shadow boxing one day, and afterward I tried a class with Francisco and it was really nice. After some time, we opened a gym and I helped him and my dad with reception and cleaning. One day we decided to compete at a jiu-jitsu tournament, and me and Irene Aldana won first place, and it was a national tournament. After that, I felt amazing and realized I wanted to feel that again by being on the podium. December 2012 was my first MMA fight and I won, and since that day I am always training.

What ranks and titles have you held? I won a belt in Xtreme Kombat - it was a grand prix, two fights in one night. I competed in many jiu-jitsu tournaments in Mexico. I won national white/blue belt 2x nogi and 1x gi and other regionals too.

Do you have any heroes? I don’t have an hero, but I admire Georges St-Pierre a lot.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? I feel amazing because it’s all fighters’ dream, and where all the top elite athletes of the world are. And it is a honor to represent my country and my gym Lobo MMA because we are made 100% in Mexico.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I am still studying for a Degree in Physical Culture and Sports.

What was your job before you started fighting? I used to teach kids in our gym and I help with everything I can. It is a family business.

Ranks in any martial arts styles: BJJ blue belt
