    I can't describe Saturday's feeling. I really didn't know what to expect, but walking out of the tunnel being the 2nd fight of the card and seeing all those people. Listening to the roar, was just another level. I couldn't be more proud of my State or City for showing up like they did.

    I've already traveled to so many amazing places. Every place had something special. Dublin was absolutely insane because Conor headlined it. Croatia took me by surprise because I had no clue what to expect. If I could ask for a place, JAPAN!!!!

    Hey Zak, your performance against Dalby turned me into a fan, displayed great striking there. Do you think that things are finally coming together, and that you're now able to showcase your full skills? It would seem like it, since you've scored two finishes in a row against decent competition.

    Best of luck to ya.

    Thanks for responding, that was one of the most stacked seasons in terms of the level of competition and just the talent in the house. Your KO over Fekete made me a fan. Best wishes in the future, cheers.

    When TUF 25 was first announced, a rumored cast list appeared & off the top of my head about 75% of the people that were on the list actually ended up on the show. Your name was on there. Was there a possibility you could have been on this current season?

    Tim Kennedy, he got me at a time pretty early in my career. But he is the only one of my five losses that I truly felt beaten. Gunner was the only other finish but a crazy eye injury had a huge part in that.

    Thank you, I'm always learning and improving. A lot of guys get to the top level and think they are good enough. I try to learn everyday. I feel comfortable with any style but I still need to win a big fight to prove to most fans that I'm for real. Hope thats what I get next.

    I was asked to do it, and I was at the medicals (which is where that list came from, it was 100% correct) I gave it some thought but after discussion with my family and team, I decided to pull my name from the list. Making 170 that many times would have done permanent damage to my body.

    a lot of explosive work. plyometrics, full body movements, flipping tires, agility work. I really don't do much heavy weight at all.

    I'm sure you couldn't have been too fond of possibly fighting James either, right?

    Fighting a teammate, best friend, and business partner.... Would have been incredibly hard but I'm sure we would have made it through it, if it had to happen. I'm happy it didn't though
