Q&A

When and why did you start training for fighting? Started 14 years ago.  I was bored and needed an outlet.  I always loved to fight. I grew up on Streetfighter, Tekken, and Dragon Ball Z.  These inspired me.

Do you have any heroes? Apollo Creed
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It would be the first real step in realizing my dream.  I want to be remembered forever. The UFC is where I can make that happen.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to the University of Cincinnati for contractual law.  I decided to pursue fighting full-time instead.
