I believe in myself wholeheartedly that I will accomplish my dream of becoming one of the best MMA fighters on the planet.
What started this dream?
My father introduced to martial arts at a very young age and have been actively competing for 23 years now. I was 5 years old when I saw my first UFC and knew right then this is what I was born to do.
What motivates you to follow this dream?
At first I thought it was going to be the money that motivated me, but I quickly found the core reason why I continue this journey. MMA gives me a platform to inspire other people. When someone reaches out to me to say they love what I stand for that anything is possible you just have to be willing to sacrifice everything in return. That for me, is what fuels my fire.
What are your goals?
Each year I sit down and refine my goals based on my current situation and the possible opportunities that may present themselves. When I first started my MMA career my goal was to be in the UFC after just 4 years. Well, this is the start of my 4th year and I’m currently sitting at a 5-0 professional record with 4 first round finishes. The goal has not changed, my timeframe has. I hope to be signed with the UFC within 2 years. This is a very realistic goal, its not “if” I will be signed its “when”.
What would you like people to know and where can we find you?
