Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Purple Belt

How did you get your fight name?

My teammate gave it to me. I am very proud of this nick name.

What is your favourite technique, and why?

I can do everything, strike, throwing or submitting… but, my signature is the triangle choke. I feel really comfortable with that.
