Fighter's Biography

  • Background disciplines ?

    MMA

    Fight preparation?

    Preparation will depend on my upcoming opponent and will usually be an eight week camp. But I am always training.

    When & why did you start martial arts training?

    I watched the movie ‘Never Back Down’ and that inspired me. I thought I could do this.

    What ranks and titles have you held?

    I’m a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and soon to be the EFC lightweight champion

    Favoured technique?

    Submissiosn because you have to be very technical to sink them in.

  • Tell us about your most memorable fight?

    My very first professional fight which I won with a dislocated shoulder. It made me believe in the power of never giving up.

    What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

    I love singing, reading, dancing and making jokes when I’m not in fight camp.
