Raised in the south side of Pheonix, it was offered at school and it was the only sport that interested me other than football. Got to make friends witg the ethnic kids some way, it worked out real well. In high school I also found a boxing coach through the local YMCA. Little latin kids used to light me up all the damn time!

me and my family were always wrestling and roughhousing while i was growing up so i'm sure that had alot to do with it. i like the one vs one competition better than team sports, if it goes good or bad there's only one person responsible for the outcome. i'm not a particularly competitive person, my main goal has always been to get better and better at the sport and what better way to find out how I have improved than to test my skills against somebody else in competition.

Started wrestling at a very early age, because my Old Man told me I had to.....

Wrestling I started in junior high. 7th grade. It wasn't until I was 15 that I started bjj and judo.

I was eating at a cicis pizza and low and behold Pride was on the big screen. Ever since that day I've been hooked
