TRAINING: I do morning technique/pad rounds and evening sparring/ rolling six days a week with fight specific stuff in between. Also have 6am strength and conditioning 3x/wk.
When and why did you start training for fighting? 2006. I was just a rowdy teenager that wanted to fight without getting in trouble. I didn’t expect anything to become of it. I hooked up with my management team (Disorderly Conduct Management) and began going to Premier Combat Center (Head Coach UFC vet Ryan Jensen) I excelled at training and learning all the aspects of MMA and loved it. Now, fighting is my profession and I can honestly say it probably saved my life.
