Down here at Jackson’s/Winkeljohn’s MMA, can you talk a little about being part of the team down here and the everyday completion that you face?
“It’s a shark tank. I feel really blessed to be a part of this team and there nowhere else I’d rather be you know. This is one of the best teams in the world. It’s an honor to be a part of it, no doubt.”
What separates you form other fighters out their?
“It’s hard to say man, I think one of the coolest things about MMA there’s no two people who are exactly the same and everybody’s got their own little flavor, their own little style. So I mean me being me already makes me different and everybody else can say the same thing. But you take your skill set and do what you can with it and get to the highest level you can with it.”
Do you think that will lead to you being successful naturally?
“I feel like I’ve got a unique skill set and I feel like with this team and coaches the sky’s the limit. So I’m gonna go all in and let the chips fall where they may.
What do fans that don’t know you need to know about you?
“I don’t know man; I’m a pretty easy going guy and just like to train a fight. There’s not a whole mystery there so I guess I’ll leave that up to them.”
