A-Trained MMA with Myron Gerber for the first time when I was 15-18 then had my son @18 y.o. Jan 2010 and stayed out of the gym till 2011 when I met Kaylee and we trained mostly kickboxing. Had my daughter 2013 and it took me two years to get back to fighting when I discovered go-ti kickboxing with my son in 2015 and we did some point tournaments with an old high school friend, Dom Bryant. After that I heard MMA was going for a turn for the worst if we didn’t start getting some quality fighters with good ticket sales so I ran into Myron again just September of last year and really started to train hard and walked into the gym knowing I wanted to fight and help bring back the sport.

Q- How do you feel like you match up with your opponent on February 10th?
A-She seems squirrelly. I was impressed she faught Khadija Mulia so I know she is tough and that’s what makes it a good match up. I walk around at 123 so we will see what happens. I never under estimate anyone. She is here today and that shows she has put in the work and I respect that. She has experience in the cage so that is her upper hand.
