TRAINING: I run intervals in the morning three times a week and meditate twice a week. Then hard MMA practice at noon and boxing or grappling training at night.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training Muay Thai in 2009. Then when I discovered grappling one year later, I fell in love with the sport and never stopped training.

What ranks and belts have you held? I won the ACC amateur 145-pound title in 2012 and I’m a purple belt in Luta Livre.

Do you have any heroes? Georges St-Pierre

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It’s everything I’ve wanted since I started in this sport. I finally made it at just 20 years old.

What was your job before you started fighting? I started fighting at 15.

Favorite grappling technique: Armbar

Favorite striking technique: Left round kick
