Biography

TRAINING: Every day striking, jits and wrestling. I have added weightlifting now since my move up and I am eating as much as possible (Laughs)
 
When and why did you start training for fighting? Coach Vaughn got me started when I was about 12 years old. I was a scrappy little kid, and he was helping me stay away from the bad crowd and keeping me out of trouble - New Mexico can be a tough place to grow up. 

What ranks and titles have you held? KOTC champion at lightweight, welterweight, super welterweight.

Do you have any heroes? My coach Tom Vaughn, My family.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means everything, it has been a long and hard struggle to get here, and now I am just going to show why I belong to stay here. It means all my hard work has paid off, and that all the people who believed in me were right and I want to make all of them proud.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No

What was your job before you started fighting? I have worked construction, now I help coach little kids at the gym.
