When and why did you start training for fighting? I’ve always been training since way before high school. I would always be in the boxing gym and started focusing on grappling as soon as I got into high school.
Do you have any heroes? My dad is really my only hero. He’s showed me the way to where I’m at now and I’m super thankful for everything he did for me growing up.
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Making the UFC has always been my biggest dream and the last check mark I need on my “before 30” bucket list. But making the UFC is just the beginning.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from University of North Texas
What was your job before you started fighting? I worked as a banker at Wells Fargo and just recently left to focus full time on fighting and making the UFC.
