Biographie

TRAINING: Wake up, make an egg sandwich with avocado, hot sauce and Ezekiel bread. Make some coffee and take my time getting to the gym in the morning. Once I get in the gym I go through my warm-up and movement routine before doing my strength and conditioning workout. After that, head home and rest up, have lunch and try to take a nap. Head back to the Lab for team practice at 3:30-5pm. Afterwards, I either come home to eat and rehydrate or stay at the gym for a small break before BJJ class or personal pad work. Usually back home around 7-8pm and work on rehydration again and have dinner - normally chicken stir fry with some hot sauce, of course. Wind down with a movie for the night. Wash, rinse and repeat 6 days per week. 

When and why did you start training for fighting?
I started back in 2009 just as an alternative outlet and to stay in shape. After my dream of playing professional hockey abruptly came to a halt, I started working a desk job where I sat in a cubicle, stared at a computer and talked on the phone all day. It nearly drove me crazy so I needed another outlet. I had a friend who trained so I decided to start taking some Jiu-Jitsu classes but never had any intention of fighting. After the first day I was hooked and had my first fight a year later just for fun. Again, no intention of ever doing another fight. However, I did another...and another...and here I am today. It's been a wild ride.

What ranks and titles have you held?
Currently a purple belt in BJJ, Former XFC lightweight champion.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?
Since I realized I was decent at this, it has been the dream. The best guys are here and the UFC is the best organization in the world. It is the ultimate proving ground and I cannot wait to compete against the best guys in the world. It is truly amazing to be a part of such an elite group. Now, I am ready to work my way up.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? 
Yes, I earned an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration from Hiwassee College. I also earned a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology with a concentration in Criminal Justice and with a minor in Business Administration from the University of Tennessee. 

What was your job before you started fighting? 
I was a recruiter (Headhunter) for Electrical Engineers. I also did some personal training in fitness and combat sports.
