Biography

Thoughts on opponent, Antonio Silva? Bigfoot is a very tough opponent and not someone to take lightly. He's going to come into this bout wanting to get a win, as will I. 

 

TRAINING: I’m currently training at AKA Thailand with UFC fighter Mike Swick. Training has been intense; I get my ass kicked 6 days a week but I love it. We do 2 sessions a day but they are 2 - 2.5 hour sessions. I can honestly say this is the best training camp I have had leading up to a fight.

 

When and why did you start training for fighting? It started off with boxing at a young age to keep out of trouble. Then I ventured into wrestling, which saw me compete around the world, and then I moved into BJJ, wanting to know more about the sport and that's where the love for MMA grew.

 

What ranks and titles have you held? AFC World Heavyweight Champion, K-OZ Entertainment World Super Heavyweight Champion, IKBF Super Heavyweight World Champion, Black Belt Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Australian Heavyweight Mixed Martial Arts Champion, Australian Heavyweight Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, W.A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Heavyweight Champion, W.A Freestyle Wrestling Champion at 120 kg, W.A MMA Heavyweight Champion, Australian Freestyle Wrestling Champion at 120 kg, ADCC Australian Heavyweight Submission Champion, South Pacific MMA Heavyweight Champion

 

Do you have any heroes? None

 

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It's great to get another chance to fight for this amazing organization. It's been a long three years working towards getting another chance and I'm excited to showcase my skills.

 

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No

 

What was your job before you started fighting? Personal Trainer
