Biography

TRAINER: I started my camp in London with my LionsPrideMMA team and Novaforca then moved to Sweden to train with the Allstars; I will finish in Brazil

 

Thoughts on opponent, Mauricio Rua? I'm very excited to be getting back into action against a top name in another main event in Brazil.

 

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

Car Dealer and worked in a Car Rental Business.
