Exhibition Fight History
Bruce Lee his method of using martial arts and philosophy to become an elite minded individual inspired me to continue smashing plateaus.
What do you do for fight preparation?
I train many martial arts, boxing, kickboxing, muay thai, jujitsu, wrestling and then I train strength and conditioning.
How did you get your fight name?
“Troublemaker” was given to me by my high school principal. I was in his office a lot and was even expelled from school. “Troublemaker” was everything that made me bad and I wanted to turn it around to mean something more positive. “Troublemaker” is to believe that you are worthy, the world is for me and not against me. To defy reality and make dreams come true. “Troublemaker” means to not conform and be so uniquely myself that I have to succeed.
When and why did you start MMA training?
Fighting is an honest reflection of how I am and my approach to life’s struggles that are based in fear and circumstances, fighting is my liberation, it’s my cure for mortality because it never allows me to settle into mediocrity and that has allowed me to accept and embrace that my death is inevitable. #freedom #liveinthemoment
How did you transition into MMA?
Backyard brawl mma gloves fight till first blood, having a fight with no negative intent just for competition, awakening a hunger in me that just couldn’t get satisfied.
