TRAINING: TRAINING: I train six days a week, 2-3 sessions a day. A typical day would be strength and conditioning in the morning, grappling in the afternoon, and striking in the evening.
Thoughts on opponent, Yao Zhikui? He is quite well-rounded and seems to be in good shape. But I think there are a lot of holes in his game that I can exploit.
When and why did you start training to become a fighter? I started five and a half years ago. I happened to watch TUF Season 1 and got hooked ever since.
What ranks and titles have you held? None
Do you have any heroes? GSP and Bruce Lee
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It's a dream come true. No one would have believed it was possible years back in Singapore for a Singaporean to be in the UFC. It means everything to me now.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to college and got a double major in management and marketing.
What was your job before you started fighting? I was and still am an MMA and Muay Thai trainer at Impact MMA.
