Biografia

Thoughts on opponent, Vladimir Matyushenko? He’s a good guy with decent stand up and real good control on the ground and he looks strong as hell. I just have to keep it in his mind and show him throughout the fight that I’m the younger, stronger and faster fighter out there

Training: Wake up, eat breakfast, go to jiu-jitsu, lunch, kickboxing, strength and conditioning, eat and sleep.

When and why did you start training for fighting?
I started training in kickboxing when I was 16 and haven’t stopped yet.

What ranks and titles have you held?
Last WEC light heavyweight champion in history (organization discontinued the 205-pound weight class in 2008).

Do you have any heroes?
Jesus

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?
I'm extremely thankful, it's a dream come true for me. It is definitely something I can't take for granted. Not everyone gets a chance to make a dream come true. This is just the beginning; without hard work, dedication, focus, perseverance and heart it can quickly turn into a nightmare.

What was your job before you started fighting? Student and trainer

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition?
As an amateur I won a couple grappling tournaments such as Grappling Quest and Desert Quest. I also won a few amateur kickboxing fights.

Specific accomplishments in pro competition?
As a pro I won the WEC light heavyweight championship at the age of 21.

Ranks in any martial arts styles:
At this moment I’m a black belt in kickboxing under Nick Blomgren and I’m a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Sergio Pehna.

Favorite grappling technique:
Nothing in particular, but I do prefer to break something rather than putting someone to sleep.

Favorite Striking technique:
Too many ways to knock someone out to have a favorite, but it's always cool to jump, spin, fly, scissor, kick or punch someone.
