How did you find MMA to begin with?

I watched it on TV probably about 10 years ago. But I got away from sports in general. Then I started watching Conor McGregor as he started to make it big. He motivated me to watch the sport again and get involved.

Did you fall in love with the sport right away when you began training?

Sort of (laughs). I had mixed emotions because it was really just something that I was playing around with.

How do you feel about what you’ve accomplished so far?

I feel great. When I started, this was something that I just did for fun. Then I decided to take a fight, and I’ve just been going from there (laughs).

How excited are you for Saturday night?

I’m really excited. It’s in front of my hometown. I don’t really know much about my opponent, so there’s an element of surprise. That will make it a little bit harder, but I’m excited about the challenge. I’m confident going into it. I feel good.

Knockout, submission or three-round war?

All three! Whatever it comes down to, I’m willing to win by knockout, submission or even by taking it to the judges, but I’m obviously looking for another finish.
