When and why did you start training for fighting? I was training just to stay in shape and because I loved it. My coach at the time called me up and asked me if I wanted to fight, so I took my first MMA amateur fight. I won the fight by first round knockout and fell in love with the game immediately.
What ranks and titles have you held? I am a brown belt in karate. Amateur Triton Fights Featherweight Champion, Amateur Ring of Combat Lightweight Champion, and Ring of Combat Pro Featherweight Champion.
Do you have any heroes? My parents are my heroes.
What would it mean for you to fight in the UFC? For me to fight in the UFC it would mean I am literally living my dreams. I get to work out every day with people I love, get better every day and fight the best in the world. And get rich while doing it.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to college but put it on hold to turn this dream into a reality.
What was your job before you started fighting? Before I started fighting, I was working construction. I would set up suspended scaffolds on certain jobs and brought the bricklayers cement and blocks.
Specific accomplishments in pro competition? My ROC fight for the featherweight championship (versus Tim Dooling) is being called the greatest Ring of Combat fight ever by the promoter, Lou Neglia.
