When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training in 2008 at Arizona Combat Sports. I started fighting because my son was going to be born. A lot of my old college wrestling teammates had begun successful careers, and I believed I could do the same.

Do you have any heroes? My kids, they saved my life. Also, Richard Fimbres and Frank Saenz, my high school wrestling coaches.

It is the biggest opportunity in my life and for my family. I’m excited to show how hard I have been working and to earn a permanent spot on the roster.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Arizona State University. I didn’t finish for financial reasons, but I’m only 15 credit hours away from a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies.

Retail, wrestling coach

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? Two-time All-American University Freestyle Wrestling.
