Exhibition Fight History
I work at a gym, so I train strength and conditioning at least three times a week. I train MMA and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu from 18:00-21:00. Saturday mornings sparring and grappling.
When & why did you start martial arts training?
I started fighting MMA in 2012 with no martial arts background. I started fighting because I wanted to prove to myself that I could do anything I set my mind to. I always wanted to be a professional soccer player and that wasn’t happening, so I started fighting because I wanted progress, I wanted to be a professional athlete.
How did you transition into MMA?
I didn’t have any martial arts background so I got stuck right into MMA. I do however now possess a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, I transitioned into that and loving it.
I don’t have a favourite technique, my favourite is which ever technique gets me the win. I have good Ground and Pound though.
