Thoughts on opponent, Dustin Pague? I don’t know much about him. I know he's pretty lanky and a striker. I believe I’ve seen him on the TUF show and he has some skills, so I’m pretty excited to get in there and show the world what I can do.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training MMA five years ago with Anthony Pettis.
What ranks and titles have you held? I have one title - it's the Gladiator Fighting Championship title.
