I recently fought Paul Karsky. The game plan was to stay calm, composed and use my experience to beat my opponent. Paul came in 10 lbs over the weight limit but we decided to go and fight anyway as I was prepared.
During the first round, Karsky went for multiple take down attempts and I was able to clinch with him, defend the take downs with my back to the fence. I reversed positions and unleashed a fierce right elbows, left hooks, and a right round house kick to the top combanation witch hurt him and the round ended.
Round 2 Karsky went for a single leg take down and I defended. I threw him on the fence and landed a hard knee right to his chin then he drops. I pounded on him with a flurry of hammer fists and fight gets stopped = fight is over.
After fight I took the microphone from announcer and called out their champion William Wheeler then Wheeler came in the cage. The title fight was set this month vs William Wheeler as a challenge he accepted.
I will blog more about that soon. Keep in touch.
After an 8 month lay off I am returning to the cage may 18 @ Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario, Ca. The fight is in a rematch vs Diman Morris 6-1-1. For submission promotions.
I am training hard for this fight and looking forward to this Rematch. I am in the best shape of my life and have surrounded my self with the best team in the world, Team Reign.
I want to thank all my sponsors , friends and fans for the support. I am confident i Am going to get a big win come may 18 in convincing fashion. Come check it out.
Please message me if you want tickets to the fight or are interested in sponsoring .

Summer is here and it’s fight season for me. I have made some minor changes in my training camp. I am now a full time Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor at Gracie Barra Anaheim Hills so this has made me change my schedule around with my training routine. I’m still doing my primary MMA/Wrestling training at Reign Training Center under Mark Munoz. Now I have incorporated the gi more than ever before and have really been working on my gi Jiu Jitsu game. I have started training my ground now with 5x World Jiu Jitsu Champ Octavio Souza, who is a beast on the ground. I have been working hard on my striking as well. I’m ready and anxious to get another win by submission or KO, finish the next fight and move on to the next fight. Training has been very consistent for me so im excited about this fight and have a lot of confidence going in to it no matter what position I get in, I am comfortable.
I’m fighting July 28th at Chaos in the Cage in Lancaster, California. Come see me fight.
I finally moved back to Newport Beach from South Orange county; this has helped me immensely due to the fact that everything is close such as Reign training center, strength and conditioning, yoga and spin. I have been training at Reign training center in Lake Forest, California for the past eleven months, I am coming off of a tough draw from Diman Morris which I had received a lot of criticism because of my fatigue in the final round, however, unbeknownst to many people is I tore my costal margin prior to the fight while training at Greg Jackson’s MMA. It was a horrible injury and I should have given myself more time to recover especially coming off surgery for a broken arm. The torn costal margin is where all your ribs meet up. The pain was so intense that I could not breath properly for several months. My training was hindered and had an abridged training camp prior to the August 20th fight with Diman Morris.
There has been a tremendous enhancement in my skill level and I attribute this to training with Mark Munoz for eleven months and training again with Allan Goes.
All the injuries have subsided I was able to get a full training camp for my last march 30 2012 bout with Sal Ferrneti which I was victorious with a rear naked choke at 2:59 in round 1. I can attribute this win to having some new extremely good training partners such as Mayhem Miller, Lew Polley, Manny Lara, Satoshi Ishii, and Mark Munoz. These guys are animals on the mat and really push me hard physically and mentally — especially Munoz . Another thing I can attribute this win to is just being persistent and being at Reign for eleven months every day , i have never trained this consistently in my life… I have also hired a new strength and conditioning coach Cory Beasly. I reincorporated former kickboxing coach Sean McCcully into my training regimen. All of these things has been beneficial and I am confident that improvement will continue in all areas of my game.
I have sacrificed my work and lost a lot of money in my mma school and personal training business because I have focused on my mma career and training myself and not other people.. I have definitely sacrificed my social life and dating and going out to focus on my career and winning fights with no distractions. I feel like I’m on a militaristic training regimen but I love it. All the hard work and persistence has paid off for the Sal Fernetti fight march 30 but I’m not satisfied and will be fighting again May 19. I’m looking forward to my next fight May 19. I feel like that last win was a new beginning for me and feel like i still have never reached my peak or full potential in my mma career due to injuries and distractions …but now is the time and this will be a busy 3 months for me upcoming.
