Fighter's Biography

  • Background disciplines?

    MMA and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

    Fight preparation?

    I work at a gym, so I train strength and conditioning at least three times a week. I train MMA and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu from 18:00-21:00. Saturday mornings sparring and grappling.

    When & why did you start martial arts training?

    I started fighting MMA in 2012 with no martial arts background. I started fighting because I wanted to prove to myself that I could do anything I set my mind to. I always wanted to be a professional soccer player and that wasn't happening, so I started fighting because I wanted progress, I wanted to be a professional athlete.

  • How did you transition into MMA?

    I didn't have any martial arts background so I got stuck right into MMA. I do however now possess a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, I transitioned into that and loving it.

    Favoured technique?

    I don't have a favourite technique, my favourite is which ever technique gets me the win. I have good Ground and Pound though.

    Job?
