When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training MMA after my first amateur fight. I was a freshman in college and saw a sign on the side of the road that said “CAGE FIGHTS AT THE K-WINGS ARENA! CALL…” I thought it sounded fun and I was a fan of the sport growing up, so I called the number and they had a fight for me. I didn’t know anything other than wrestling, my Dad was in my corner, and my entire family came out to
watch me. I won a unanimous decision by basically just wrestling the guy for three rounds.

Do you have any heroes? I wouldn’t call them heroes but I definitely look up to a lot people, mainly family members. I’ve idolized and studied great athletes my entire life, such as Wayne Gretzky, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Muhammad Ali.
What would it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It would mean everything to me. It’s a promise I made to myself and my family many years ago and I intend to fulfill that promise.
