What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It’s great being a part of this great organization.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to veterinary school but left school 1 year before graduating to pursue my dream of being a fighter.

What was your job before you started fighting? Prior to fighting I was a vet student.
