When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training when I was about eight and I just wanted to spend time with my dad. He was an MMA coach and I just fell in love with it from there.
What ranks and titles have you held? I have held the Fight to Win MMA title, the PFC MMA title, and the FFC championship.
Do you have any heroes? My hero is my dad, Ernest Kimball. He has taught me everything I know and he is just a hard worker.
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It’s huge for me to fight in the UFC. I have wanted to fight for this organization my whole life, but it’s not enough to just be here; I am here to win.
