Fighters Biography

When & why did you start martial arts training?

I started Judo fifteen years ago and the reason was simple, I wanted to improve and test my fighting skills.

Transition to MMA?

It was through my former coach, he spotted me from Judo.

What achievements and ranks have you held?

Judo Blackbelt

What is your favourite technique?

It is a snap kick, because most people they don’t see it coming, especially if it’s thrown after a boxing combination.

 

Who is your hero?

I am my own hero, I’ve been through a lot in life and I survived almost everything that came my way.

What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself

I am a third degree Judo Blackbelt and a Judo coach.

What does it mean for you to fight in the EFC?

For me, fighting in EFC is not just a dream come true. It’s something that I will cherish with my friends and family for the rest of my life.
