Biography

TRAINING: I get up at 8am and eat a little bit (sometimes I take just a protein shake). Morning class begins at 9 am and it is usually the easier part of the day, as we practice techniques and drills. After morning class I take some food and go to sleep. Afternoon session begins at 5 pm and it´s usually harder. We do sparring and conditioning. After that I have some free time and I go to sleep about midnight.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started in 2008 just for fun. The level was very low that time in our gym and it was far from pro fighting, but I enjoyed it.

What ranks and titles have you held? I am number 1 in Czech Republic and the GCF champion

Do you have any heroes? My hero is my teammate Alexander Gustafsson, he is a great inspiration for me.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? For me it is a fulfilled dream, so it means a lot. There is also a lot of responsibility to Czech fans, because now I am the only Czech fighter in the UFC.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Yes I studied at the Police Academy in Prague but I didn´t earn any degree yet.

What was your job before you started fighting? Student
