Biographie

TRAINING: Always hard sparring, and extra wrestling for this one.
 
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started in 2007. I was done with football and wrestling in college and needed the competition. I felt like I would be very successful in the sport and loved it.

What ranks and titles have you held? TUF 12 finalist, XCF ammy title at 155, MID mo ammy title at 155. XCF pro title at 155

Do you have any heroes?
The biggest hero in my life right now is my mother

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means the world to me. It’s always been my goal ever since I started and I’m not letting it go to waste. On the other hand, if I can’t entertain the fans and live up to my ability, it wouldn't mean anything.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Yes. A couple of colleges, no degrees yet, but I plan on finishing and earning my degrees.

What was your job before you started fighting? I was a full time student and worked full time as a server; somehow I managed to do both while fighting full time as well.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? 5-0 with two titles

Favorite grappling technique
: Double and single legs. I also love the triangle.

Favorite striking technique: Everything - knees, punches, kicks, and elbows.
• Team GSP member on TUF12

• Seven wins by knockout, two by submission (kimura, undisclosed submission)

• Former football player at Central Methodist University

• Fought first amateur fight after only three months of training

• Pro since 2008

• Fought UFC vet Joe Brammer in 2009 (lost via fourth round submission)

• Has won seven of his last nine and four straight
 
• Origin of nickname - "It just came to me one day. I wanted something that no one else had. Plus it just fit with my name and attitude."
