Biographie

TRAINING: I do two or three a days some days... Striking, conditioning, wrestling, and, of course, lots of BJJ

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training years after the first UFC. I watched the Gracie family showcase their BJJ in the Octagon and I quickly became a fan. Then I realized that I wanted to learn the art of fighting and there was no other way but to learn BJJ with it. Eventually I found a BJJ gym in Florida, Team Popovitch, who helped guide me into my dreams today.

What ranks and titles have you held? Fight Time Lightweight Championship and ISKA Lightweight Championship. I also have lots of titles in BJJ such as: North American ADCC Trials Champion, 3rd Abu Dhabi World Pro Weight & Absolute, several times NAGA and Grapplers Quest Champion, Brown Belt Pan American Champion, 3rd Brown Belt Gi Worlds.

Do you have any heroes?
I'm a really big fan of Renzo Gracie, Wanderlei Silva, Minotauro.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?
It means everything. It means I will have the chance to show people what I do best and to be recognized for my talent. I want to build a legacy, to be remembered and not quickly forgotten like a lot of other guys. That's why fighting in the UFC is so important to me because once I step into that Octagon, people will never forget me.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Only college I went to was the BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU CENTER, that's where I got my Black Belt degree.

What was your job before you started fighting? Back in the days I used to work in construction. Now I teach BJJ.

Specific accomplishments in pro competition? Victory over Igor Gracie. It had to be a turning point in my MMA career.
