Chicago, Illinois, United States

I am Mr. Arnold Adams, 25 years old; I was born in fairbanks, Alaska, raised in Sacramento, California, and moved to Chicago in 2002. I started with Pure Force MMA in 2007. My trainer is Steve Colon of Team Colon in Merrillville, Indiana. I have a love for football and wrestling; I participated in wrestling in high school, and played football my entire life. From high school wrestling the adrenaline rush was unmatched! That’s when I realized that everything I did determined how good I could be and how far I could go as opposed to a team sport and relying on other players! I was amazed at the possibilities ahead of me. My ultimate goal is to make it to the UFC! After college ball and some semi pro football and endless tryouts I started watching UFC's the ultimate fighter, and from that point I was hooked. I started searching internet for local MMA gyms, and training facilities. When I'm not training for a fight I like to relax, play the video games, or go fishing... Spending time with my kids Adrian and Aiyahna in addition to doing what I love makes my life beautiful. In my spare time I enjoy volunteering with the local youth around the city and inner communities.

I love this sport because it's you! Nobody else is to blame for the outcome but you! The countless days in the gym, the weight room, the track, the bike trails, stairs... Your success in this sport is determined by you and you alone!
