Currently pursuing his masters degree in Structural Engineering from the University of Wisconsin, Georgieff is spending his summer in Las Vegas trying to become The Ultimate Fighter.
A native of St. Paul, MN, Georgieff graduated from St. Paul Academy in 2001 where he garnered varsity letters in alpine skiing, tennis, and football, squaring off against Twins All-Star catcher Joe Mauer on the high school gridiron. After graduation, before heading to the University of Vermont, Georgieff took up judo, which sparked his interest in MMA. While majoring in math and minoring in both art and physics at Vermont, he began training in Brazliain jiu jitsu, wrestling and kickboxing, and made his MMA debut in 2002. He hopes to improve in all areas while on the show, but especially his wrestling.
Outside of the Octagon, Georgieff can be found studying the art of Sir Francis Bacon, listening to a variety of music from Immortal Technique to Miles Davis to Sick of It All, and quoting The Big Lebowski endlessly with his friends. When his career in MMA is over, Georgieff would like to put his Structural Engineering degree to use in designing bridges.
