Fighters Biography

When and why did you start training martial arts?

At the age of nine and I started training martial arts because I had a passion and a love for martial arts fighting.

When & why did you start martial arts training?

From childhood I did karate, Judo and some kickboxing. At 18 I started training MMA and quickly putting all the fighting style I had learnt together.

How did you get your fight name?

I got my fighting name because I’m a quiet person but, when it comes to fighting I become dangerous just like a gun being wielded, when you pull the trigger of a gun things start to happen.

Who are your heroes?

My father, I am who I am today is because of him!
