TRAINING: I train every day two shifts. I have been training very hard for many years and it’s been a very big evolution. In this fight, I will show a little of that.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started when I was 13 years old, after watching a Kickboxing class in a Gym in Argentina. I have always practiced sports, and this one in particular caught my attention. That was when I started training.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It is a dream coming true.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Yes, Physical Education (incomplete)

What was your job before you started fighting? I did just about everything. I taught, worked in security, was a doorman, assistant cook, books salesman. Just about everything you can think of.
