Biography

TRAINING: Wake up, eat and go to work every day. I grind and dream to be a world champion. 

When and why did you start training for fighting? When I was 16 years old. I fight because I’ve loved fighting since I was a kid and I started with one goal: the UFC

What ranks and titles have you held? I'm a brown belt in jiu-jitsu, 145-pound belt for FMP in Mexico
 
Do you have any heroes? My Dad and Georges St-Pierre
 
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? For me, the UFC is everything in my life. I chose only one option in life and it is the UFC, so when I started to fight and people asked what would happen if the UFC doesn't call me, I just say I'll be in the UFC one say. I love this.
 
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No college for me, only the UFC. Fight college (Laughs).
 
What was your job before you started fighting? Only fighting and helping my Dad in whatever he needs.
