Biography

TRAINING: Training is always the same - sparring five rounds, 3 days a week, followed by drills and grappling. Wrestling sucks on Tuesdays. Strength/conditioning and boxing Thursday and Saturday and a whole lot of cardio almost every night.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training MMA when I was 22 because I liked to fight and needed a job. I also had been training different disciplines for most of my life, from judo to wrestling to jiu-jitsu, so I knew I could compete at a high level.

What ranks and titles have you held? Strikeforce middleweight champion, California high school wrestling state qualifier. Blue belt and purple belt world champion in jiu-jitsu. Black belt (Jiu-Jitsu), Red belt (Le-jitsu).

Do you have any heroes? No specific heroes, just a lot of people I look up to and try to learn from.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Yes, no degrees though; I dropped out to fight and pursue my dreams.

What was your job before you started fighting? Construction / solar panel installation.

Specific accomplishments in pro competition? I never sat on the stool.
