3. Why did you decide to start? What inspired you? I started doing to crossfit to get me in better shape so I could try other classes because I want to start fighting for undisputed I believe undisputed has all the tools I need to reach greatness I have been wanting to fight for a while just couldnt find the right gym to teach and train me properly just being a mixed martial artist is an inspiration on its own.
4. How is CF different from anything you’ve ever done? Crossfit is just a surpirse everyday thats the difference because playing football I always knew what to expect during two-a-days, regular practice, and off season.  I never know what to expect when I walk through those doors I am always nervous.
