Biography

Thoughts on opponent, Maurice Greene? Good fighter with gifted talents. He has tremendous reach and size.   I will really enjoy the challenge of fighting him.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training as a young kid when I began my wrestling career in Cuban.  I began training in MMA a little over two years ago when I arrived in the United States. When I arrived from Cuba it was the best way to quickly help my family.

What ranks and titles have you held?  Member of Cuba’s Olympic freestyle wrestling team in Beijing 2008.  Gold Pan American Games 2007

Do you have any heroes? No

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It’s a testament to all the hard work and the sacrifices of my family, particularly my wife, to allow me to get to this position. It’s truly the culmination of a dream and the progression of my training.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No

What was your job before you started fighting? I have always competed, but during off periods I worked as a bodyguard.
