Biography

TRAINING: S&C in the morning, mixed in with some boxing sparring. Then MMA training in the evening. I try to do that 6 days a week.

Thoughts on opponent, Francimar Barroso? First, he’s from an amazing gym. Nova Uniao is known the world over for producing the most elite, most dangerous fighters on the planet. Second, he’s a black belt in BJJ under Andre Pederneiras, so you know he’s going to be extra dangerous on the mat. Finally, he’s fighting at home coming off a loss so he’s going to be hungry and angry. All those things add up to a very dangerous opponent.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I wanted to find something to challenge me after college football. I started training for fun, and after my first fight I fell in love with the sport.

What ranks and titles have you held? Blue belt in BJJ (Rafaello Oliveira), black band in KMAA’s homemade MMA style.

Do you have any heroes? My mother and father.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? A dream come true. Everyone aims at the top, so to finally make it here is HUGE! But I'm not done yet; I plan on making it to the top of the UFC - just wait and see!

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn?
I received my bachelors degree in Sociology from the University of Tennessee.

What was your job before you started fighting?
