When and why did you start training for fighting? I have been training in martial arts since I was a child. My father owned King of the Cage in Australia and I used to watch a lot of the top Australian fighters step in there. 

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Fighting was the first thing I learned growing up. I've been watching the highest level fighters compete in the UFC since I was a kid and to now say I am  apart of a company that I've always dreamed of being a part of is still a bit surreal.  

What was your job before you started fighting? I was a Laborer and Apprentice

Ranks in any martial arts styles: Black Belt in Japanese Jiu Jitsu, Black Belt in Kempo Karate, Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Favorite grappling technique: Flying Armbar
