Biography

TRAINING: AM drill, team practice at 10:30, afternoon conditioning and an evening drill session.

Thoughts on opponent, Anthony Johnson? I like Anthony Johnson - he's a great fighter and I'm excited to test myself against him.

When and why did you start training for fighting? When I was 10 years old, I used to have to physically fight two of my brothers for a seat at the dinner table.  There were three of us and two chairs.  By the time I was 12 I was eating dinner almost every night.  I realized then that I knew how to fight, but I just needed to focus this ability.

What ranks and titles have you held? 2x Big Ten champion, 4x All-American, 2008 NCAA wrestling champion for Penn State

Do you have any heroes? Jesus Christ

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It’s an honor and thrill to have reached such a high platform so soon in my career.  Moreover it means everything.  I need to make sure that when I have kids, there are enough seats at the dinner table for everyone.  I don't know how much more motivation I can find besides that.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to Penn State and got a BS in Kinesiology

What was your job before you started fighting?  I worked as a bartender at Bar West in San Diego

Ranks in any martial arts styles: I'm in between white and blue in BJJ, maybe a white and blue checkered belt, but done classy like it’s on an Old Navy mannequin.

Favorite grappling technique: Guillotine

Favorite striking technique: Crane kick
•    Four wins by submission, two by knockout

•    Turned pro in October 2008

•    Four first round finishes

•    On four fight unbeaten streak (3-0, 1 NC)
