Biography

TRAINING: I train Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. My typical training day includes four sessions. For example, Monday morning I do strength & conditioning at 10 am, no-gi grappling at 11 am til 12:30. Monday night I wrestle from 5-6 pm, and then work boxing from 7:30 til 9 pm.

When and why did you start training for fighting? Was a freshman in college and looking for a new sport. My father and I used to rent the UFC tapes, so when I heard that there was a Muay Thai/BJJ school in town, I signed up and got hooked!

I was the XFO light-heavyweight champion prior to my first UFC run.

The UFC fighters are all professional level athletes that train at the best gyms, have the best coaches and teammates, and are 100% dedicated. It is an honor to be battling these athletes at this level.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Bachelor Degree with a Biology major and Chemistry minor. Magna cum laude honors and biology graduate of the year.

What was your job before you started fighting? I worked in a laboratory doing blood testing.
