Fighters Biography

HERO?

Jon Jones. He is one of the most talented, skilled, best MMA striker and I love his game techniques. He is my inspiration.

HOW DID YOU GET INTO MMA?

I have always been physically active into sport, going through practice everyday and maintaining a strict diet. At the age of 11 years, I started training for karate and moved to kickboxing and watching MMA events gave me motivation and more courage after that I started to join MMA classes. I was competing under amateurs.

WHAT ARE YOUR LIFE ACHIEVEMENTS?

Becoming a professional MMA fighter

WHAT ARE YOUR FIGHT ACCOLADES?

At the amateur level, I got 2 championship belts. Firstly, I was competing under AFL and secondly I was competing under MFC company. 2017 I signed a contract with EFC.

WHAT CAN FIGHT FANS EXPECT FROM YOU?

Last year, I only participated in one event. If I can get more opportunity to improve myself and show what I’m capable of, I see myself holding the EFC Championship belt in my division. I am focused on my route to success and for the upcoming event, I am ready. I have had several months of training and I will do my best.
