About Clifford in his own words
In college I was a Division 1 collegiate wrestler & in
2004 I finished 3rd in the Pac-10. I told the coach I wanted to
fight in the UFC in one year. The coach smirked & said “Cliff,
NOBODY gets into the UFC in less than a year.” So, there I was, an
amateur fighter with a BIG HAIRY AUDACIOUS GOAL to fight in the UFC
in less than a year.
Training hard every day, I put in the reps, learned new techniques & watched every single calorie, no matter if I was sick, tired, sore, or injured. I executed flawlessly every day because I had absolute clarity about where I was & where I wanted to go.
10 months later I fought my debut fight in the UFC on one of the biggest stages. Not only was my goal accomplished, but I went on to have a successful career as a professional fighter.
