Biography

TRAINING: Working in all areas of MMA

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training BJJ, a fight came up and I took it. I stepped out of the cage after winning and decided this is what I want to do, and I haven't looked back since.

Do you have any heroes? My mum. She brought me up tough and with all the love she had, taught me everything. She fought cancer till her dying breath. Fighting ain't got s&$t on that.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Everything!!! It's the UFC!! Dreams are reachable with sacrifice, blood, sweat and tears.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn?
No, but I am a carpenter by trade and I am also a Barista

What was your job before you started fighting?
I was a Barista. Besides fighting, coffee is an obsession.
