What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?
One step closer to making my dreams come true

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? I have over 50 jiu-jitsu tournaments under my belt, and I’ve placed first, second, or third in every one of them.

Ranks in any martial arts styles: Jiu-jitsu black belt and dark blue and black in Muay Thai.
