How did you become an MMA fan?

I do promo work for Bud Light and Absolut Vodka at Tilted Kilt, which is a sports pub that shows a lot of the UFC pay-per-views. I’ve also worked at Wild Bills in Atlanta, and they have live fights. Lots of great fighters have come out of there.

What’s your favorite thing about mixed martial arts?

The sport is so intense—the blood is crazy. I also love the walkout music. You can tell a lot about the fighter from his choice in music.

Do you have any fight moves?

I used to do kickboxing and karate. I quit at green belt. I did it mostly to meet cute guys [laughing], but I can still land a roundhouse if I need to.
