What ranks and titles have you held? NAIA All American. Legacy Fighting featherweight champ

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It what it's all about.  It’s why I started training to fight. It means the work I've put in is paying off, but it's not good enough to just make it - I want the title. That's when I'll be happy.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Missouri Valley College - Exercise Science

What was your job before you started fighting? Personal Trainer

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? 6-1 amateur MMA. All-American in wrestling

TRAINING: Killing my cardio and keeping fresh guys in the gym. I only had the fight for a few weeks and have really just focused on improving myself and my own game plan. I have put the time in the past to train a specific game plan for an opponent and it seems to go in the opposite way. I feel it's better to keep improving and focus on what I'm going to do in there and not think too much.
