Biography

TRAINING: A typical day of training for me is jogging early in the morning, a group session with the BlackZilians and at night drills with Henri Hooft.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started jiu-jitsu in 1998 when I was 12 years old, and started MMA in 2011.  

What ranks and titles have you held?  2nd place in No Gi IBJJF World Rankings (Middleweight) and 4-time World Jiu-Jitsu champion.

Do you have any heroes? No

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It’s a privilege and a dream come true. It’s an important accomplished goal and I’m looking forward to winning the belt, because that’s the main goal.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I studied Physical Education but did not graduate.

What was your job before you started fighting? I used to work at a car wash. I also worked as a tire repairman and worked at an office running errands.

If any, list ranks in any martial arts styles:  2nd degree black belt in Jiu-Jitsu
