Estevan Payan

UFC Fighter



1.) What advice do you have for an aspiring MMA Fighter?

It's not an easy road. People think all we do is fight, but we most likely have to have a side job. You're not going to get much money right off the bat in this sport.


2.) What has been the highlight of your career?

Being in the UFC. It's like the Super Bowl of all MMA events. I lost my first fight in the UFC, but just being able to fight in the UFC is amazing, because that's where everyone wants to be. I fought for Bellator, Strikeforce, and now I'm fighting for the UFC!


3.) What are your goals for 2014?

Continue fighting for the UFC against big names. My first fight was against Jeremy Stephens who's a veteran in the UFC, and now I'm fighting another veteran Charles Oliveira.


4.) What does a typical day look like for you?

I work out, go for my run, do some strength and conditioning, shower, eat something, come in to the gym at around noon. On Monday and Friday, I do grappling and wrestling. After I do that, I do bag work, go back home, eat, relax, then I come back at 6:30 PM, and do sparring and bag work. 


5.) What do you like to do in your free time?

In the summer, I spend time with my kids. I go to water parks with them, we eat, go to other parks, and just hangout. I also stay in the gym, even when I don't have a fight. 


6.) Who were your heroes growing up?

My kids, they're the ones who motivate me.


7.) If you weren't a MMA fighter, what would you be?

I would still probably be in the Military.
