Biographie

TRAINING: My training never changes.  I train three times a day, six days a week and mix it up between the different disciplines.

Thoughts on opponent, Tim Kennedy? Tim is a very tough fighter and the kind of fight me and my manager, Tina Vidal, were looking for to take me to the next level.  

When and why did you start training for fighting? Six years ago

What ranks and titles have you held? I have had almost every medal in every wrestling tournament I ever entered, from World championships to Olympic games; also Pan Am championships, World cups, and many, many other international wrestling tournaments and invitationals. Won Silver medal in freestyle wrestling in the 2000 Olympics

Do you have any heroes? Jesus Christ.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? This is my dream. When I found out I was in the UFC, I picked up my wife and danced her around the room. I'm so excited.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Bachelor degree in Sports science

What was your job before you started fighting?
Just wrestling in the German league.

Ranks in any martial arts styles: None, but I will become a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Black belt.

Favorite grappling technique: I love them all - I love Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
