From football player to MMA fighter, tell us about the transition.

I love it. Being an athlete is my passion and to find another way where I can stay dedicated while challenging myself to be better has been a good transition. There are moments when my MMA Training feels like I’m playing football again.

The best example I can give you is when I learn to new technique and I’m able to successfully execute, the feeling I have reminds me of when I would make a good tackle. What I love about MMA Training is that it’s all me.

If I train hard and do what I have to do in order to prepare myself for an upcoming fight, I should be in position to win. With football, you can do everything right and because of the variety of factors that’s involved in a game; the result may not go in your favor. With MMA, I feel I have a greater control of my destiny.

Focusing on Dominick the MMA Fighter, why the nickname, Devastator?

My kicks are devastating and I liked the name.

How far do you want to go with your MMA career?

For me, it’s UFC or bust. The same way it was my goal to compete in the highest level of professional football is the same way it is for me to compete in the highest level of Mixed Martial Arts.
