Biografia

TRAINING: A typical day of training usually begins at 10am with a hard wrestling practice or sparring session. Midday, I rest up and get in my homework assignments for graduate school. Around 4/5pm I'm back at the gym for a BJJ drilling or technical session. By 7pm I'm on campus at school until 10pm. Bed and get up to do it again.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I did karate from 5-17 then started kickboxing when I was 18. That eventually turned into BJJ, then MMA. Martial Arts has always been a passion of mine. It’s a way of discipline and respect.

What ranks and titles have you held? I am a black belt in Jhoon-Rhee Taekwondo. I'm currently a blue belt in BJJ. As an amateur fighter I was a four-time world kickboxing champ & three-time amateur MMA champion, eventually earning the #1 amateur spot before turning pro.

Do you have any heroes? My mother - for her strength and never ending love.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? A childhood dream come true.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I graduated at 20 years old in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts, double majoring in Criminal Justice and Sociology.

What was your job before you started fighting? I worked in customer care for a cruise line.

Favorite grappling technique: Ground-and-Pound

Favorite striking technique: Punches in bunches

• Pro since 2012
