TRAINING: Wake up, go on a run, BJJ at noon, pro practice at 1:30, pad work with a workout at night, then sometimes a late night run.  

When and why did you start training for fighting? I was in high school and saw guys making money. I was always down to fight. I figured why not make money. I never imagined I would take it this far, I love it. 

What titles have you held? King of the cage, DFC, RFO featherweight champion 

Do you have any heroes? My family and friends. Everyone in my life puts a lot of work into me and I really appreciate

everything that’s done for me. I didn’t make it here alone. 

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It is everything to me, especially after I saw the UFCPI. I just want to live in that place and train. I think this is everything I have been working for the last 10 years. It is time. 

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I’ve been in and out of college for years. I haven’t graduated yet but I will be in school this upcoming fall for app development/ programming 

What was your job before you started fighting? I have always had a million jobs. I was a CNA taking care of the elderly

for about four years. I always wanted to be a nurse. 

Ranks in any martial arts styles: BJJ brown belt 

Favorite Striking technique: I really started liking knees and elbows. I want to throw more of those and work the clinch more.
