When and why did you start training for fighting? At 23, I just had a sudden desire to train MMA. There was no reason behind it, it just suddenly seemed cool.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Being in the UFC was my dream, but it's only the beginning of the dream.  I came to be a legend, and this is the beginning of my legacy.

What was your job before you started fighting? I was a swimming coach.
