Well I grew up poor my dad left my mom before I was born. My mom had to work 3 server jobs just to pay rent. I was born in Phoenix Arizona. We moved a lot because sometimes tips weren't good so we couldn't afford to pay rent. Because I grew up on the street with no supervision I got into some trouble as a kid. Luckily marital arts were there to help me channel my energy in a positive way. Unfortunately, it was hard to pay gym fees so it was off and on until was older. I had been powerlifting and doing Scottish highland games my heritage is Apache Scottish and German. The town that I lived in only had one BJJ school. When I found out I was extremely excited! Even though it was expensive I made in happen. It was a NU academy and they were legit, when I started I was 255 lbs. I had my blue belt and had a few golds when I decided to take my first MMA fight. It was in Galveston right by the beach. I beat the guy in about a minute with a little ground and pound with a RNC. I love Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and will continue to do it for the rest of my life. As for MMA I hold two light heavyweight titles but feel like I could accomplish more. My biggest MMA fight was for Belator I took it on short notice and won. It was amazing to fight at the Toyota center with legends like Royce Gracie and Ken Shamrock.
