Born in Huntington, WV, I became interested in Martial Arts in 2nd Grade with a start in Karate. I won numerous Karate Tournaments and was in the Black Belt club. At age 15, I started Boxing, winning several tournaments. From there, I added the ground game of Martial Arts after being inspired by the UFC. I trained at Ground Zero in WV. Six months later, I had my first mixed martial arts cage fight. My opponent was undefeated, and as the underdog in the fight, I won the fight in 25 seconds. Currently, I am training with Hector Pena and Bas Rutten. I made my IFL debut on May 16, 2008 beating veteran Zac George with a KO in 47 seconds of the first round.

Trains with: Hector Pena, Bas Rutten, Rich Franklin, Lupe Aqunio, Kimbo Slice, Big John McCarthy...
