Q & A
Who or what inspires you?
My mother. She not only has a huge heart but also has been an incredible help in my life. My other inspiration has been Anthony Robles, the wrestler out of ASU. Seeing him compete for a National Championship was just incredible, and it’s those things that really keep me going.
What do you do in your spare time, when you’re not preparing for a fight?
Spend a lot of time around the house with friends and family, but I’m always in fight mode.
If you were describing yourself as a fighter, what would you say?
Unique and just different. You’ve seen it, but you really haven’t.
What does it mean to you to be fighting for Bellator Fighting Championships?
It means the world and I feel I am absolutely blessed.
What are your thoughts on the Tournament Format?
I really like it. I’m always active, so the tournament format keeps me busy. It makes Bellator standout from the others.
What would it mean to you to become a Bellator World Champion?
Everything. All my hard work would be rewarded and it would mean the world.
In 3 years, where do you see yourself?
In three years, I feel like I will be holding that Bellator belt, no question.
Which victory are you most proud of in your career?
In my last fight before I entered the Bellator Tournament, I got a victory over a tough opponent with only 10 days notice, and a separated shoulder. I knew this was a big opportunity, so I had to take it, and ended up grinding it out for 15 minutes and got the victory.
What is your message to aspiring fighters that dream of fighting on a big stage?
Keep working hard, and keep praying until you get that shot. It will come. Don’t ever take no for an answer.
In a perfect scenario, what would be your favorite way to end a fight?
Come out strong, put one on his chin, and make him go to sleep.
