Fighter's Biography

  • Background Disciplines:

    MMA

    Fight preparation?

    6 days a week, all-round MMA for 3 hours a day.

    When and why did you start MMA?

    I started at the end of 2009. I’d always been sporty and my two brothers were into Muaythai. I didn’t particularly enjoy the standing and striking on its own, then when they started MMA I found I was well suited to it.

    What do you enjoy about MMA?

    I enjoy the physicality, hard training, fighting and personal tests involved. It’s great to improve and constantly learn.

  • What do you consider your strengths to be?

    Fitness and strength. I’m strong for my size, which possibly comes from cutting down from 91kg two years ago to featherweight!

    What do you do when not competing or training?

    I work in construction and chill with friends and my girlfriend. I worked out that when I’m not working or training, I only have 20 hours a week to myself, so I try to make the most of those hours.

    MMA highlights:

    I went 9-1 as an amateur, which is an achievement I’m proud of. I also beat Dino Bertolis, who was supposed to be the next big thing! On paper, everyone had him winning easily, but it turned out to be a tough, controversial match. He caught me in a triangle choke in round three and says I tapped, but the video looks like me winning by ground and pound TKO.
