TRL: What got you into wrestling?

KH: I did Muay Thai [kickboxing] when I was little, and then my brother started to do wrestling, and we’ve always been fans of UFC and all those sports that use wrestling in a way.

TRL: How many hours a week do you put into wrestling?

KH: Seventeen and a half hours, not including tournaments.
