Question & Answer
How old were you when you started wrestling?
I started wrestling seriously when I was 12 years old. I also played soccer and football when I was younger but decided to stop playing in eighth grade to focus solely on wrestling.
How difficult was it to transition from wrestling to MMA?
Honestly, the transition from wrestling to mixed martial arts came very naturally to me. Ever since I started wrestling I knew I wanted to compete in MMA at some point. From personal experience, it’s much easier to learn MMA if you have a wrestling background.
What got you interested in MMA?
Growing up, I watched a lot of George St. Pierre’s fights and he’s really the one that got me interested in the sport.
What does your diet consist of?
When I first started MMA, I had a nutritionist that helped me out, but now I do everything myself. I don’t count calories or macronutrients, rather I just prioritize eating whole-foods and fueling for performance. Leading up to a fight, I really dial in my diet and prefer to take a paleo style approach to nutrition.
What’s your top three recovery techniques?
My top three recovery techniques are sauna, cold showers, and getting adequate sleep. I track my sleep/recovery using a Whoop band and make adjustments based on the feedback it gives me. Optimizing my diet has also drastically improved my recovery capabilities.
What’s your training schedule look like?
Leading up to a fight, I normally train two times a day on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Each session focuses on something different, such as sparring, strength training, or technique work. I also have a light training session on Wednesday that primarily focuses on a specific technique.
What’s your go-to cheat meal?
My go-to cheat meal has to be Five Guys.
Do you have any other hobbies outside of fighting?
I really enjoy playing guitar, reading books (highly recommend 12 Rules For Life from Jordan Peterson, and watching TV (some of my favorite TV series are Game of Thrones and Peaky Blinders).
What’s your top three Axe & Sledge supplements?
My top three Axe & Sledge supplements are Farm Fed, The Grind, and the Multivitamin & Omega-3. I take all of those products daily.
What are your current top two goals?
My top two goals are to be the best fighter in the world and achieve financial freedom/security.
If you could make your own flavor of Home Made Bars, what would it be?
It would be either Coffee Ice Cream or Pumpkin Pie.
Why did you choose Axe & Sledge Supplements?
Ever since I started fighting professionally, I wanted to get sponsored by businesses based out of Pennsylvania since I grew up in PA. I really value supporting local companies and I had some mutual connections with Axe & Sledge. This company has truly exceeded my expectations and I am so grateful to be a part of the team.
