How have the stakes changed now that you’re with the WEC?

Most memorable professional fight? My last fight between me and Donald Cerrone. Even though it was a loss, I learned a lot from it, I had a good time doing it, and when it was all said and done, I left everything in the cage that night.

What was your most challenging professional fight?
Probably defending my belt against Jamie Varner. There was the high altitude and I had a broken ear drum, so it was a pretty bad day.

Did you compete in any other sport at college or professional level?
I was a professional Thai boxer

Fedor Emelianenko, King Kong, and the Sandman (from Mike Tyson).

Did you put more emphasis towards a fighting style or adjust your training to prepare for your opponent?
I'm focusing on conditioning the most.

Until it’s not fun anymore.
