Biography

When and why did you start fighting? "When I was little, my dad got me into martial arts (Tae Kwon Do). Then, I moved to Iowa and started wrestling. Pat [Miletich] would come in to the wrestling room and work out with us before his fights. I wrestled around with him for a little bit and then he told me to come up."

What is your biggest weapon in a fight?  "My determination to win."

What are your goals as a fighter in the UFC?  “To keep winning. To move up in the ranks and wait for my turn."

What is your favorite technique?  "My stand up. Throwing power punches."

Who has been your biggest influence in fighting?  "Mike Tyson, because of his knockout power. The first boxing match I ever watched was Tyson vs. Spinks. After that, I was hooked. I just like his power and tenacity and how he fights everyone like they stole something from him."
