Drain was homeless as a kid growing up in Jay, Oklahoma, but says the experience motivated him to provide a better life for his family. 

… and it’s a rather large family!

Drain is currently raising 12 children — many of whom he took in from family members who needed the help. 

“My dream is to help children,” Drain says … “I was on the streets with no parents at a young age. I just want to give back.”

Drain has a background in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and spent time training at the famous Jackson-Wink MMA Academy in Albuquerque in 2021, where he honed his craft alongside MMA stars like Holly Holm.

Power Slap debuts on TBS on Jan.18 at 10 pm et/pt.
