Aljamain Sterling Early Life

Cleveland and Sophie Sterling, who are both from Jamaica, welcomed Aljamain Sterling into the world in Uniondale, New York on 31 July 1989. Sterling began wrestling at Uniondale High School in 2004 as a way to avoid the pervasive gang culture that some of his brothers had joined. Sterling chose to enroll in Morrisville State College after realizing that he couldn’t catch up with the grades required to move up to Division I.

 After meeting Jon Jones and working out for the wrestling team while attending Morrisville, Sterling became interested in MMA. Sterling switched to Cortland after his first year and went on to win two NCAA Division III All-American awards. With a bachelor’s degree in physical education, Sterling left Cortland.
