Born in Santa Rosa, California, raised in Ninilchik, Alaska, Austin grew up playing basketball and was the only person on his high school wrestling team. He eventually went on to be an NAIA National Champion for Southern Oregon University.
I wanted to continue to compete following my senior year in college wrestling. I started at a small gym in Medford, Oregon before eventually moving to Portland, Oregon where I train under Fabiano Scherner and along side Chael Sonnen, Ed Herman and last but certainly not least the stunning Paige VanZant.
Career Honors, Awards, and Highlights: 2x Alaska High School wrestling state champion, 2x NAIA All-American and National Champion, 5-0 ammy MMA record and 4-0 professional MMA record.
The first time I heard of CBD was when I heard that the Diaz brothers used it. I now take Eco Sciences products because it truly helps with the everyday wear and tear I receive from fighting. I also battle with stress, especially at night. Hemp oil helps calm me down for a peaceful night of sleep.
