Fighters Biography

What do you do for fight preparation?

For training I work on whatever areas of my game that most need improvement. Being fit is also a big thing for me so I do my road work and cardio, strength and conditioning, as well as pads and my normal MMA training at my gym.

How did you get your fight name?

Don’t have a fighter name (as yet).

When and why did you start martial arts training?

I started MMA when I was 16. A friend of my father took me to a MMA gym to see if I’d be interested. I’ve been obsessed ever since.

What is your pro and amateur MMA record, as well as any other disciplines you’ve fought in.

My MMA amateur record is 5-3. Boxing amateur record was 3-1, I was very, very young. I’ll be making my pro debut EFC 32.
