I believe in my dream to become a UFC fighter.
What started my dream?
My brother used to watch the UFC on TV all the time. I thought it was crazy and not really cool, two guys fighting each other and then once I kept watching it, I said to myself hey, I could do that I'm athletic enough. So one day a friend of mine heard that I was interested in the sport and he had a friend that was doing MMA. He told me to contact his friend gave me the number I called the guy and he told me to come out and train and have been doing it ever since.
What motivates you to follow this dream?
What motivates me is my family and friends, fans and the amount of support I receive. It keeps me pushing and striving to reach my goals.
What are your goals?
My goals are to someday be sign to the UFC or some big organization, become champion, open my own gym and be stable financially.
What do you want people to know and where can we find you?
What I want people to know is that you can do whatever you put your mind to never stop chasing your dreams, people can find me on twitter @chasejmma and Instagram @chaserj08 Facebook Chase Johnson.
