You are scheduled to face Shawn Mack at CES MMA 49 on April 6. What do you know about your opponent and how do you envision the fight playing out?
April 6, I face a strong stand-up fighter in Shawn Mack. He has a decent triangle off his back and he’s earned 3 triangle finishes in his pro career. I’m a seasoned wrestler and I plan on taking Mack down and having my way with him. Once I pass his guard, it’s over.
What drove you to take up Mixed Martial Arts as a profession?
What drove me to take up MMA was being a wrestler in high school and not making the transition to college wrestling. I was looking for something to do. Two of my best friends and wrestling teammates in school Ruben Ruckus Rey and Luis Rockstar Felix were fighting professionally at the time so I wanted to give it a try.
Is there one piece of advice that has helped your career the most?
The advice that has helped my career was don’t take fights just to fight it’s not worth it. I understand people want to see wars, but if it’s not beneficial to you then don’t take it.
What do you like to do in your downtime when you are not training?
I love to spend time with my daughter she’s the funniest person I know and she takes my mind off of all the fight world stuff.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
Fact about myself hmmm, I was born a premature baby at 3 pounds and I’ve been fighting all my life. Being in the cage is another day in the office
What would be your dream venue to compete in and why?
A dream venue for me would be TD Garden. I’m a Boston native, so fighting at home would be a dream come true.
