Fighters Biography

Fight preparation?

Three times a day most days, conditioning in the morning, boxing in the afternoon, Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu in the evening.

When & why did you start martial arts training?

March 2010. I wanted something different from the boxing I was used to so I joined a grappling club and evolved from there.

What ranks and titles have you held?

EFC featherweight champion

Added Detail

  • Groomed as a professional boxer before moving to MMA
  • Training partner Demarte Pena moved divisions so as to not clash with Allen
