When and why did you start training for fighting? I started at 13 years old because a friend of my brother asked us to come try a BJJ class, so I went and watched and I signed up that day and it is history from there. From BJJ, I started boxing and striking and wrestling and mixing it all together.
Do you have any heroes? My heroes are my brother and father
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means all the sacrifices and hard work paid off and I can look my family in the eyes and say it was worth it.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to Southeastern Louisiana University and earned a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice
What was your job before you started fighting? When I first started I didn’t have a job, just school, but I’ve had odd jobs through fighting such as working at a police department in evidence, construction, and now plumbing.
Specific accomplishments in amateur competition?2015 IMMAF world champion, #1 IMMAF 2015 pound for pound amateur in the world, UMMAF national champion, FFI welterweight ammy champion (defended successfully 3 times and earned it at just 17 years old). 13-0 as an ammy
