Q&A

TRAINING: Focused on movement/footwork, flexibility/breathing, tenacity and, most of all, injury prevention.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I was always competitive growing up. I took karate and wrestled in High School and then went up to 245 pounds. I got sick looking in the mirror and I started training to lose weight. I had my first amateur fight, and I felt I could prosper in this, so I became passionate about training and my health.

What ranks and titles have you held? 205 destiny state title.

Do you have any heroes? Professor Martin Buell & my father for my upbringing, Nick and Nate Diaz for changing my nutrition and instilling a great work ethic and healthiness in my life.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means I can finally represent myself, my team, and especially Hawaii, in the best fighting promotion in the world.

What was your job before you started fighting? Painter

Favorite grappling technique: Guillotine

Favorite Striking technique: Liver shot
