Biography

TRAINING: Luta Livre and boxing every day, and a lot of running and conditioning
 
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training Muay Thai in 2009. Then when I discovered grappling one year later, I fell in love with the sport and never stopped training.

What ranks and belts have you held? I won the ACC amateur 145-pound title in 2012 and I’m a purple belt in Luta Livre.

Do you have any heroes? Georges St-Pierre

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It’s everything I’ve wanted since I started in this sport. I finally made it at just 20 years old.

Did you go to college, and if so, what degree did you earn? I went for one semester, but quit to train full-time.

What was your job before you started fighting? I started fighting at 15.
