Biographie

TRAINING: I do a morning session that consists of pad work, bag work, and a lot of drilling of stand-up and grappling. Then I do my strength and conditioning, which consists of lot of explosive drills and weights. My night session consists of a lot of live grappling or sparring.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training MMA because I grew up watching the old UFC's and I saw how good the wrestlers were doing and wanted to do it ever since. I have been training for almost six years now.
 
What ranks and titles have you held? I am a C3 lightweight champion. Purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
 
Do you have any heroes? None
 
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means a lot for me to be in the UFC because it’s the Super Bowl of MMA. I’ve always dreamed about some day fighting in the UFC.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to college for two years at University of Wisconsin Parkside and didn’t earn a degree.

What was your job before you started fighting? I am a Local 597 pipefitter
Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? I was an Indiana state high school wrestling champion. I finished my high school career with 191-9 record. I was a 4 time freestyle wrestling champion and 2 time greco state champion.

Favorite grappling technique: Guillotine and a rear naked choke.

Favorite striking technique: Straight right and Muay Thai knees
 
• Eleven fights at featherweight (8-3)

• Has won 11 of his last 15

• Tied for second most wins in UFC featherweight history (eight wins)

• Eight wins by KO, three by submission (1 Von Flue choke, 1 guillotine, RNC)

• Origin of nickname: “I got the nickname "The Damage" because my face is always bruised up and it’s really easy for me to get a cut.”
