-What is the best part about being a MMA fighter? What is the toughest part?
The best part about it is it's a job I love. The toughest part is keeping your body injury free.
-If you were not a MMA fighter, what would you be?
I'd probably be involved in wrestling somehow. I love to train and coach, so that would be a great fit for me.
