Biography

Thoughts on opponent, Fabricio Camoes? Fabricio Camoes is a very tough fighter. He has been fighting for a long time and is a very good grappler. He has not been the busiest fighter due to injury. I think this will be a very exciting fight for the fans. 
 
TRAINING: Mornings I am doing my strength and cardio at S.O.S. (skill of strength) in New Hampshire

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training Jan 1, 2011. I started training because someone knew I liked to fight and invited me out to train. I walked into the gym thinking I was the baddest guy alive. After getting choked and submitted by a 125 pounder multiple times, I knew this was what I wanted to do. I hate losing and I knew right then that this was my dream.

What ranks and titles have you held? None

Do you have any heroes? I would not call them heroes but I would say that I look up to them. I am a big GSP fan because of how dominant he has been in all aspects of the sport. I love the timing he has and how he always keeps his opponent guessing.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means that I have the opportunity to prove to myself that I belong with the elite fighters in this sport. The best fighters fight for the UFC and now I can get one step closer to my big goals. The hard part just got started.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to NDSU and dropped out because I was never motivated by academics but only by athletics.

What was your job before you started fighting? I was cleaning carpets in St. Cloud, MN. Great people but I am glad I found MMA.
