TRAINING: Strength and conditioning in the morning and MMA in the afternoon.

 

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started to train jiu-jitsu when I was 12 years old, after a while I started training Judo. I have always loved this fight world, and my dream was to become a fighter since I was a child.

Do you have any heroes? My mother and my father

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? A dream coming true

What was your job before you started fighting? I was attending law school but quit in order to train.

Favorite grappling technique: Takedown
