Biography

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training back in 2012 and had my first amateur fight in 2013. John took me under his wing straight away pretty much. 

What ranks and titles have you held? I am a purple belt in BJJ with a lot of regional tournaments won under my belt. 

Do you have any heroes? My teammate and friend Conor McGregor is probably my biggest hero. To see what he has done and achieved is amazing. 

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? To fight for the UFC is a dream come true. John asked me about 18 months ago, when I turned pro, what my main goal was, and I said, “To walk out and fight in Vegas,” which I will be doing now very soon. 

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I didn't go to college. After secondary school I went straight into full-time employment, where I worked on the building sites.
