Biography

TRAINING: Training for this fight has been hard and smart

When and why did you start training for fighting?
I started training in late-2002.  I really loved it, and never thought about fighting, but I was helping Phil Baroni train for a fight and after one session he said ‘you’ve got potential, you should start fighting.’  Two months later I was in the ring fighting.

What ranks and titles have you held? Total Combat middleweight title

Do you have any heroes? BJ Penn, Shogun Rua, and my nephews.

What is your favorite technique? To stand and brawl – I love it.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means a lot.  When I first started, it was my dream. Every fighter wants to be in the UFC, and for me to make it, it’s a big accomplishment. I’m just stoked that I’m in it.

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

What was your job before you started fighting? I did a lot of things - roofing, waterproofing, landscaping, tiling, construction.  Pretty much any hard job, I did it.

•    Tallest fighter in the UFC middleweight division

•    Loss to Munoz was UFC 112 Fight of the Night

•    Faced UFC vets Joe Riggs and Hector Ramirez before making UFC debut

•    Fight against Herman named third best fight of 2006.

•    Took off second half of 2008 to help care for his newborn daughter.
