Biography

TRAINING: Wake up, eat and go to work every day. I grind and dream to be a world champion. 

When and why did you start training for fighting? When I was 16 years old. I fight because I’ve loved fighting since I was a kid and I started with one goal: the UFC

What ranks and titles have you held? I'm a brown belt in jiu-jitsu, 145-pound belt for FMP in Mexico
 
Do you have any heroes? My Dad and Georges St-Pierre
 
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? For me, the UFC is everything in my life. I chose only one option in life and it is the UFC, so when I started to fight and people asked what would happen if the UFC doesn't call me, I just say I'll be in the UFC one say. I love this.
 
What was your job before you started fighting? Only fighting and helping my Dad in whatever he needs.
 
Favorite grappling technique: Triangle choke
