TRAINING: A typical day of training is eight hours of work at my regular job as a public works road lead man, coaching my son’s baseball or football team, whichever one is going on, two hours of strength and conditioning and two hours of working technique in boxing, jiu-jitsu or wrestling.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started back in 2009 because I was 325 pounds. I got a call from a buddy, he said they need someone to come wrestle with the local heavyweight champ, and so I went in there and wrestled and sparred with him and fell in love with the sport. It has totally changed my life.

What titles have you held? Westcoast fighting heavyweight champion, three-time Gladiator challenge heavyweight champion

Do you have any heroes? Randy Couture

What would it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It would mean the world to me to be in the UFC. I have fought for other big organizations in the world, but the UFC is the top. I want to show my son and the people that come from my little town that if you put your heart and mind to it, you can do anything, but it’s going to take hard work and dedication to get there.

What was your job before you started fighting? I’m currently working for Yuba County Public Works
