Biography

TRAINING: Typically I train 2-3 times a day. Drills, running, strength & conditioning, as well as classes built around learning different arts and tactics.
  
When and why did you start training for fighting? I have wrestled my whole life. I began training mixed martial arts in 2008 when my older brother Hector began fighting professionally. I made my debut in 2014 and have been training full-time since.
 
What ranks and titles have you held? None
 
Do you have any heroes? Jesus Christ is my hero. All glory to God.
 
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Becoming a part of the UFC would mean the opportunity to begin my lifelong dream. Being in the UFC is one thing, but to finally get the chance to showcase who I am and what I bring to the table means everything to me and it’s what I've worked for.
 
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to college for two years, studying Mechanical Engineering. I love science and math. But fighting was a passion I couldn't let go, so I pursued my dream by moving to Florida to train full-time and evolve.
 
What was your job before you started fighting? I have worked part-time for a few jobs, mainly to support my family and little boy. I’ve been dedicated and remain dedicated to chasing my dream and vision. There's no such thing as part-time in this sport. It’s the truth and there’s no way around it.
 
Favorite Striking technique: Throwing hands is my favorite technique.
