TRAINING: Training is crazy for me. I get up every day and do strength and conditioning at 5:30am. I have my privates with my trainer from 9:30-10:30 then I do team training right after. Night training starts at 7pm and we go crazy on each other "Blackzilian" style.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started when I was 20 yrs old. My friend asked me to try it out after wrestling in college. I tried it out once and got hooked.
What ranks and titles have you held? Rocky Mountain National tournament winner
Do you have any heroes? My granddad (pop) and Walter Payton
What is your favorite technique? None
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means the world to me. I've worked hard to get my weight down, I feel great, and wouldn’t change anything for the world. Now I can take care of my family how I need to.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Lassen Community College
What was your job before you started fighting? Bouncer
