Personal life

Trevino has a younger sister named Sarah. Having finished High School, Trevino decided to start fighting, as he wasn't able to focus on a profession unless it was something he really loved, due to his ADHD.

Trevino also attended the School of Hard Knocks reality TV show, a show intended for people who have had problems with personal abuse and use MMA as a way to recover.
