Ways To Watch
TRAINING: After my last fight June 28th, I stayed very active and found out in just about two weeks I would be fighting again. I kept my training about the same as the last. I start with a morning run, then train BJJ & boxing, then take a break and train at noon MMA/ Muay Thai/ Wrestling(varies daily). Also, depending on certain days, I add Crossfit, conditioning and weight training and usually always finish my days with BJJ and another run as the fight gets closer. I did three weeks of this camp in Brazil and will finish my last three weeks at home in Pharr, TX.
Thoughts on opponent, Ramsey Nijem? I know he’s a tough guy and comes in strong and aggressive, but I've been training for his style of fighting. I'm going to be ready whether he wants to stand up or take me down. I know it's going to be a good show and I'll be ready come August 30th.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started when I was 10 as a hobby; I just wanted to learn how to defend myself. My first time on the mats, I was super excited to learn, but I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I fell in love with the sport and have been training since.
What ranks and titles have you held? Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu 3rd degree black belt,
STFC lightweight champion, Legacy FC lightweight champion
Do you have any heroes? Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? For me, it’s a dream come true to fight for one of the biggest MMA events in the world. I know everyone wants to be here and trains for this, and just like I trained hard to get here, I will keep training hard and do whatever it takes to stay and make my way to the top.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No
