Hamman is originally from Atascadero, California and was raised by his single mother along with his older brother, Loren. Hamman, who was expelled from a private school, later attended Atascadero High School where he was a standout athlete in football, swimming, track and field, and also competed in wrestling for one year. Hamman continued with football as a defensive end for the University of Redlands, winning All-Conference honors. He also worked as a teacher and an assistant coach before pursuing mixed martial arts.
