Biography

TRAINING: 7 days a week in the gym, ranging from 3-6 hours per day. It’s not an easy life, but it's a good life.

Thoughts on opponent, Rolando Dy? My mama said if you have nothing nice to say about someone, don't waste your breath.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I had my first amateur fight in 2011. I wrestled in high school and it seemed like a natural progression.

Do you have any heroes? Robel Hailu – a great Ethiopian humanitarian and philanthropist who also dabbles in MMA training.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?  I set the goal of reaching the UFC early in my career and this is the culmination of years of hard work.

What was your job before you started fighting? I was a qualified builder and a foreman at Bridge City Building Co.
