My first experience with organized fighting was in a tiny venue. There was hardly any money involved and it was nothing like what you see on TV. Even without all that, when I knocked out my opponent the crowd went wild. To see those fans screaming and loving what they saw, I knew I wanted to be a professional fighter.
Along with my family, my fans are what motivate me. Whether I'm training for a fight or walking down the tunnel to the octagon, I am constantly reminded of why I do what I do. I am fortunate to have a great following by some of the best fans in MMA and I am very thankful for that.
Over a the last decade, a lot in the sport has changed for me. I've refined my abilities and evolved as a fighter, adding a ground game and more technique. The one constant has been the fans. I want to thank all of my fans for the rush I get every time I step into the octagon.
Thank You Again!
