When did you start training for competition?

I started when I was 19 and took some time off. I recently started training again and was invited to try out for XFC; however, covid put a damper on those plans!

What martial arts are you trained in?

BJJ and Russian Sambo

What are your thoughts on your opponent?

Shelby is new like I am, so I think it will be a pretty even match minus the height advantage I have. Bella will be a challenge, and I’m really looking forward to it.

If you were to win, who would you like to fight next?

Anyone from the blue team or black team… LOL. Let’s go pink team!

What strengths do you bring to the league?

My personality; I try to stay positive and bring good energy to situations I’m involved in.

Favorite striking technique:

Ole Faithful — a solid right hook to the kisser

Finishing move:

The Guillotine

Boots… I’m obsessed with boots.

What makes you laugh the most?

Do you have any heroes?

My mom. I lost her to suicide when I was 14; as an adult I have a different way of looking at her death. She endured horrible things, and I’m amazed by how strong she was for so long.

What is the meaning of life to you?

To live it. People don’t spend enough time just enjoying life. You can’t wait for life to be done being hard, before you decide to just be happy.

What other things are you involved in?

Snowmobiling, golf, hiking, and fishing. I love being outdoors
