Why do you fight?
I fight for many reasons. Respect, confidence for my family but mainly because it was something I’ve always had inside and I’m passionate about.
What inspires you?
I’m inspired by courage mostly. When I see great fights or amazing performances and acts of courage I want to relive that feeling through my actions as well.
Best part of being a fighter?
Getting to do what I love. It’s like building the baddest race car and your the car. I love adding new weapons and becoming better.
Your best asset as a fighter?
Best asset as a fighter would be a mix of my explosiveness and my eagerness to be great.
What’s your post-victory meal?
I love to have victory breakfast no matter what it is as long as it’s a huge breakfast with everything and juice and coffee etc!
What’s a movie book that changed your life?
I would watch Rocky over and over as a kid and also Bloodsport.
What’d you do if you weren’t a fighter?
I would of still done a little more modeling and pursued more acting.
What’s the nicest thing a fan did for you?
I really enjoy when young kids ask for pictures and are fans. Kids see people like that as superheros when they are young so I like playing that role for them.
What’s next for you?
Fighting August 16th at UFC Fight Night 47 in Bangor, Maine on the FS1 prelims.
