What do you like best about working in MMA?

MMA is one of the fastest growing sports worldwide. I started out promoting Boxing events in 2004 before MMA was on its rise but always loved the sport. I can remember watching early UFC, Pride, and Pancrase events on bootleg VHS tapes and always wanted to be involved in the sport. So to answer the question about what I love about working in MMA the simple response is everything. I get to wake up every day and have a job that I love.

 

What advice do you have for someone who is interested in sports management?

The only advice I can give to someone that wants to work in MMA is to make sure that you are in the sport for the right reasons. People that choose MMA or any Combat Sport as a profession for that matter need to realize that it is not all glitz and glamour. It is a very difficult and cut throat business that requires tough skin and dedication. It is definitely not for the faint of heart.

 

What has been the most exciting event you have promoted?

I have promoted events all over the country and world for that matter but my most exciting event was one that I did as VP of Live Events for M-1 Global. The event was in April of 2009 and featured Karl Ammoussou and a special exhibition match between Fedor Emelianenko and Shinya Aoki. It was an amazing event and truly a great experience as I always wanted to promote an event in the land of the rising sun.

 

What was your favorite subject in school?

My favorite was always History. I love learning about the past and the events that helped shape the world as it is today. 

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

While I always liked athletes like Michael Jordan and Jerry Rice in the end I am just a fan. My true heroes were and always will be my Mother and my Father. They taught me about life, took care of me, and shaped me into the person I am today.
