TRAINING: I've focused a lot on wrestling for this fight. I believe whoever controls positioning in this fight will win. Unless that's Morecraft, then I'll just submit him.
When and why did you start training for fighting? In 2005 I started taking a jiu-jitsu class for fun. Shortly thereafter I met UFC vets Chris Lytle and Jake O'Brien and they talked me into giving it a shot.
What ranks and titles have you held? Legends of Fighting super heavyweight champion
Do you have any heroes? Dana White
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It's a once in a lifetime opportunity that I plan to take full advantage of.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went for a year and a half, but quit to start my own business
What was your job before you started fighting? I was retired after selling my business in 2005
Favorite grappling technique: Flying armbars
Favorite Striking technique: Anything that closes the distance so that I can get the fight to the ground
