Biography

TRAINING: For this fight I have worked a lot on my striking cardio and my striking skills. Typically I spar several rounds with fresh opposition each round, it's not uncommon to spar 15-20 three minute rounds or, on a light day, 5 five minute rounds.

Thoughts on opponent, Thiago Tavares? Thiago is a very tough guy and a very skilled fighter. He always looks to finish his fights and I expect a serious challenge in this fight.

When and why did you start training for fighting?
I started fighting when I was 19, I didn't know any better. LOL

What ranks and titles have you held?  I was the AFC middleweight champ.  I fought for the UFC lightweight title at UFC 33.  I have been moderately successful in submission wrestling.

Do you have any heroes? Jesus and my Dad

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means that I get to fight the toughest guys at my weight and get proper recognition for doing so.

Did you go to college? I attended community college.

What was your job before you started fighting?
I started fighting when I was 20 so fighting has pretty much been my job for a while, but I have operated a painting company through the years and have worked part time as an electrician.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition?
I was the UFCF Amateur Champion (15-0 as an amateur).  I was a HS state wrestling champion.  

Specific accomplishments in pro competition?
I have a lot of wins against tough guys.

If any, list ranks in any martial arts styles: Black belt in Cowboy Karate
