When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training when I was 14. I originally wanted to be a boxer but the only gym I could find was kickboxing and Jiu-Jitsu



What ranks and titles have you held? Elite One featherweight champion. Purple belt in Jiu-Jitsu



Do you have any heroes? I have always looked up to George St Pierre, not only as an MMA fighter, but as a martial artist.



What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? To fight in the UFC means that all the years of training and sacrifice are paying off.



What was your job before you started fighting? A lot of jobs: personal training, construction, a little bit of everything.
