When and why did you start training for fighting? I started at eight years old.  Inside the gym they beat my brother and then I went to defend him, and the teacher invited me to train and then I started.

Do you have any heroes? My Mom and my training partners.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means I’m going to be among the best in the world. UFC has always been my dream and I will make it come true. I’m gonna fight in UFC and be a big problem in the division. I see myself as UFC champion. 

What was your job before you started fighting? Worked as a deliveryman. 

Favorite grappling technique: Triangle choke 

Favorite Striking technique: I like to use kicks
