Tell us about your nickname Doc and how you got it ?
Alright so my nickname, Doc, that comes from my time in the military. A title that any soldier, especially a combat medic will tell you is earned, not given. I was a combat medic, a.k.a. line medic, which meant I was the medic that was right there with men on the front lines (infantry). I earned my name and place amongst my brothers, they’re where my nickname comes from.

What was the defining moment for you when you knew you wanted to become a fighter ?
Since childhood.
I have a goal to be the best, period, end of story, the best. As I was growing up I constantly pushed myself, constantly wanted more, and constantly wanted a new and more difficult challenge. Fighting is, was and will always be MY answer.

Absolutely! I mean mom is mom, always worried, but confident in my abilities and me.

What is your current record ?
