When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training in 2009 and haven't looked back since. I knew I had a gift and it would be a shame if I just let it go to waste.
What ranks and titles have you held? Ranks and titles don't mean anything other than those from the UFC. Therefore, none.
Do you have any heroes? My woman - surgeries, weight cuts, life's obstacles, and she's still here.
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means the world to someone who came from nothing other than hopes and dreams. When you stay disciplined, focused, and motivated, anything CAN happen.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I have attended college and am currently working towards my AA degree to eventually receive a bachelor's degree in Kinesiology.
What was your job before you started fighting? I was a college student using financial aid to fight. I also worked at a plastic recycling center.
