TRAINING: Training stays the same as the last camp – a lot of power and explosion, along with speed and agility and a lot of swimming with running.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training to fight in October of 2005. I was watching the first season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ and I liked how they were in shape. I always liked to be healthy, so the training regime intrigued me. Reese Andy was the one who influenced me to sign up with AMC and then it's just taken off from there.
What ranks and titles have you held? UFC flyweight champion. In my amateur circuit I held 4 different titles. Genesis MMA & Genesis Muay Thai, Rumble on the Ridge, Ax Fighting Championship
Do you have any heroes? Batman, because I grew up watching him and always wanted to be like him.
What is your favorite technique? My footwork.
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means everything. I can’t wait to fight for the UFC and I can’t wait to show the UFC that I belong here.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Yes, I went to Pierce Community College and didn't finish my associates degree because I was at a turning point. It was either to stay in school and get my AA or continue training harder and try to make a career with fighting. I made the decision to pursue my dream as a fighter and here I am today.
What was your job before you started fighting? I worked in a warehouse in downtown Tacoma that's a recycling tube plant.
