Preparation will depend on my upcoming opponent and will usually be an eight week camp. But I am always training.
When & why did you start martial arts training?
I watched the movie ‘Never Back Down’ and that inspired me. I thought I could do this.
What ranks and titles have you held?
I’m a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and soon to be the EFC lightweight champion
Submissiosn because you have to be very technical to sink them in.
Tell us about your most memorable fight?
My very first professional fight which I won with a dislocated shoulder. It made me believe in the power of never giving up.

I love singing, reading, dancing and making jokes when I’m not in fight camp.
