Question: You have held 3 Bellator World Titles, you’re a 2x Pan American Wrestling Gold Medalist, World Cup Champ, All American,…and this is just the start of your list of achievements. Is there a particular title or achievement that means the most to you?
Joe: “My beautiful family means the most to me. My wife Christy, son Xandr (10 yrs old) and daughter Maddox (9 yrs old) are by far the best achievements in my life.”
Question: Joe, You call this march to Tokyo the Baddest Man on a Mission. What does that mean?
Joe: “I have faced great personal and athletic challenges, all the time people ask me, "Why?" I need to fight my way to Tokyo for the kids and young men and women that will never get the same opportunities I did. I'm asking everyone at PHASE IV to support me, because I wrestle for my country; yes, but also for those less fortunate who work just as hard, but have had there hopes, dreams, and opportunities taken away. I want to show them that it is never too late, and to never give up. That is my mission."
