Q & A

When and why did you start training for fighting? I have always loved martial arts. I started when I was 17 in Muay Thai and kickboxing, then slowly made my way to MMA over the years.

What ranks and titles have you held? Former WKBF world middleweight K-1 champion

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? The UFC, for me, is the pinnacle of competition. Fighting here was a goal because I know the best and most skilled fighters are here, so this establishes me as one of them and that is the competition and challenge I want.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to university for about six months, then moved to Thailand to start my degree in martial arts; way better idea.

What was your job before you started fighting? I used to hang dry wall (plaster board) in Auckland.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? Amateur career was very limited; I had six fights, then turned pro.
Specific accomplishments in pro competition? I won a world title, gained world rankings in the Top 10, fought the #1 ranked fighters for K-1 and Muay Thai in the world, beat some lost to some, it’s all part of the trip. I fought for ONE FC, was able to live as a professional fighter in a country where the sport is a major minority. I’ve lived a life that not many will live or have lived. These are my accomplishments.
Favorite grappling technique: Heel hook
Favorite Striking technique: Left hook or left body rip
