Fighters Biography

Fight preparation?

I train with the best, amazing stand-up and ground coaches.

When and why did you start training for fighting?

Recreational, now it’s all I do and all I think about and something I would like to make a long-term career of.

Transition To MMA

In my first three fights in the EFC, I didn’t really have any ground game. I didn’t really understand and I wouldn’t even say I was a white belt level in jits. I kinda just winged it. Sprawl and brawl were my tactics, and that’s kind of become my game plan now. Obviously, I’ve been working a lot harder on my wrestling and my jits. I like to stand to fight—that’s what the crowd loves and I aim to please the crowd.

What ranks and titles have you held?

ISKA Scottish Muay Thai Champion.

Favourite technique:

I’m an aggressive striker; I would have to say the clinch and elbows.

Other interesting info:

I’m definitely the most fun loving and nicest of the EFC fighters.
