Background

Reyes was born in Hesperia, California, California, United States.[2] Reyes has always been an athlete where he had a wrestling background and played football when he was young, and dreamt of playing in the NFL. After graduating from Hesperia High School, he moved to New York to attend Stony Brook University, where he earned his B.S. in Information Systems[7] while playing defensive back for the Seawolves, eventually becoming captain. He twice made the All-Conference team. After not being drafted, he returned home to California and channeled his energy to focus on MMA training at his brother’s gym, Combat Cage Academy,[4] and started competing in amateur MMA fights shortly after.[8][4]

He works as an IT technical support for a high school and fights professionally under the UFC banner.[4]
