Biography

TRAINING: Nothing typical about this camp. It started in Albuquerque, living at Cowboy’s ranch and training out of Jackson / Wink, then two weeks in Australia, now finishing in Thailand. Minimum two sessions a day, maximum four, with two of them being technical or active recovery sessions.

Thoughts on opponent, Ovince Saint Preux? He’s a big strong guy with knockout power. I’m hoping he brings a hard fight.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I have been training in martial arts since I was a child. My father owned King of the Cage in Australia and I used to watch a lot of the top Australian fighters step in there. 

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Fighting was the first thing I learned growing up. I've been watching the highest level fighters compete in the UFC since I was a kid and to now say I am apart of a company that I've always dreamed of being a part of is still a bit surreal.  

What was your job before you started fighting? I was a Laborer and Apprentice

Ranks in any martial arts styles: Black Belt in Japanese Jiu Jitsu, Black Belt in Kempo Karate, Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Favorite grappling technique: Flying Armbar

Favorite Striking technique: Tornado Kick

 

• Pro since 2013

• Five wins by submission (3 RNC, guillotine, kimura), two by KO – has finished all wins, all in the first round

• Longest win was 4:10
