Q- What has been the most memorable moment of your MMA career?
A-My second fight against Dylan Farris. The 3rd round and we both were completely drained and once we touched gloves I landed a straight right then he shot in for a takedown and I reversed it and got mount position and landed a few strikes hoping the ref would stop the fight but Dylan ended up getting out mount position and had me in a very awkward position that led to the end of the round. Moral of the story, we never gave up even though we were drained of everything we kept pushing forward
