TRAINING: A typical day of training varies for the fight. Mon-Thur is two sessions (combination of wrestling, boxing, kickboxing, jiu-jitsu, and conditioning). Friday / Sat are only one training session (sparring and conditioning).
Thoughts on opponent, Takanori Gomi? I’m excited to be fighting a legend like Gomi.
When and why did you start training for fighting? When I was younger, I loved doing martial arts, and then I started wrestling and competing and everything just fell together. It was definitely the right path for me.
What ranks and titles have you held? Black belt in Jiu-Jitsu under Carlos "Caique" Elias and black belt / Founder of Jury Jiu-Jitsu.
Do you have any heroes? God
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? My dreams are coming true and I’m one step closer to becoming a champion one day.
