Q: What are your biggest motivators in life?
A: “My biggest motivators now are the belt and my fiancé.”
Q: What is the hardest thing you ever had to do in your life?

Q: How do you see your fight playing out November 19th?
A: “My fight ends with my hand raised! No prediction on knock out or submission, I’m just going to go where the fight takes me and show my skill set is beyond his.”
