Background

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Sampson, along with his two brothers, competed in wrestling. Sampson began wrestling at the age of 12 and wrestled at MacArthur High School. Sampson was talented, earning three state titles, and continued his wrestling career at The Apprentice School in Newport News, Virginia, where he earned NCWA All-American honors. Sampson was involved in a freak accident during his collegiate career in which his opponent broke his neck and became paralyzed despite Sampson using a legal move. Sampson was heavily affected by the incident and the school received a lawsuit, which was later dismissed. Sampson then began training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu before transitioning into mixed martial arts.
