Biography

TRAINING: I have brought my camp to Mexico to get acclimatized to the altitude. Our morning/afternoon is spent doing our own individual training. This includes running, skipping, stretching, yoga, pad work. Then in the evenings we all go to the gym together for a team session. This can be a BJJ, wrestling, boxing session or sparring.
 
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training in San Diego in 2007. I was there for a few months and I came across a MMA gym. I had watched MMA for several years before this and had always wanted to train but I had never seen a gym in Ireland. 

What ranks and titles have you held?
Cage Contender welterweight champion and CageWarriors welterweight champion.

Do you have any heroes?
Not really. I admire many people but I wouldn't say I have any heroes.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?
It means I have I have taken another step closer to my dream. I saw myself fighting in the UFC even before I had my first fight. It is where I always wanted to be. The realization that I have even made it this far is incredible. But just fighting in the UFC is not the full realization of my dream.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn?
Yes, I studied forensics in Dublin City University (DCU) and graduated in 2012.

What was your job before you started fighting?
I started competing professionally while still in college. When I graduated I decided that I wanted to focus all my time into chasing my dream and I turned down jobs and lived with little money in order to pursue my passion and follow my dream.

Ranks in any martial arts styles:
Blue belt in BJJ

Favorite grappling technique:
Any sort of choke

Favorite striking technique:
Any type of capoeira kick
