Biography

TRAINING: Isophit, strength & conditioning, then sport specific training

Thoughts on opponent, Cris Cyborg? Just another opponent. Obviously, she’s a dominant opponent, but it’s the same as every other fight.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I was burnt out from wrestling due to all the BS USA wrestling was pulling. I was tired of paying to play, so I wanted to use my skills to actually make some $$$.

What ranks and titles have you held? Invicta world championship at 135, some ammy title in the Midwest. Rankings are a joke; it's a popularity contest.

Do you have any heroes? Not really heroes, but my mom is the one that helped me get to where I am today. She's been nothing but supportive through every sport.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Means I make a little more money. More is always better.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Yes, I have a BA in Criminal Justice

What was your job before you started fighting? Construction, for the most part. I've also worked for the railroad for several years. It's hard to have a good job and be able to take the time off for big fights.

Ranks in any martial arts styles: Well, I wrestled, so...I did well
