Biography

TRAINER: A typical day consists of morning and evening sessions in grappling and striking together with cardio work. The intensity goes up closer to the fight.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training in 2008 with no martial arts background. I started training because it was interesting to me and I thought I’d be good at it.

What ranks and titles have you held? UK Light Heavyweight Number 1 - UCMMA LHW Champion. Purple belt in BJJ under Ricardo da Silva from Team Novaforca

Do you have any heroes? Mike Tyson, because I liked his style and aggression!

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means everything to me. It’s what I’ve worked for since I’ve started training, but getting there is not enough; I’ll keep working until I am champion and a UFC legend.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No

What was your job before you started fighting? Car Dealer and worked in a Car Rental Business.

Favorite striking technique: Jab!

• Pro since 2008
