When and why did you start training for fighting? When I was 14, I started training karate because I always was interested in martial arts and used to watch a lot of martial art films with my father.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means a lot to me. I have been watching the UFC since I was young and always felt I would be there one day.
