Ty Pennington hosts HLN's new original series "American Journey"

Tarrence Williams begins his day with a pre-dawn workout. He's a man on a mission. His goal: become the youngest Ultimate Fighting Champion in history.

At 21 years old, he's giving all he has to his dream. He even moved back home with his parents to make it easier to train full time. He's working hard for an upcoming fight in Moscow. If he wins, it will put him one step closer to his dream of joining the UFC. If he loses, his dream may be gone forever.

We traveled with Tarrence to Russia to see him compete in the biggest fight of his life. Find out if he wins or loses on HLN's American Journey, hosted by Ty Pennington, Sunday April 14 at 7 p.m. ET.
