TRAINING: A typical day of training starts with coffee, followed by music and driving, followed by workout #1, which is usually either striking or strength and conditioning. Then more driving, lunch, nap, then workout #2, which could be anything from wrestling to grappling to swimming. Some days we'll add a third workout, but that usually depends on how I'm feeling on that particular day.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started judo at 11, retired at 21, and started MMA at 22 because I realized I didn't really want to work in a conventional field of work for the rest of my life.
What ranks and titles have you held? Junior World Champion (judo) World Silver Medalist (judo) Olympic Bronze medalist (judo) Pan Am Games Champion (Judo) 4th degree Black belt in Judo
Do you have any heroes? FEDOR!!! I would have 57 of his babies if he'd let me.
