Fighters Biography

When and why did you start training martial arts?

In 2001 my father wanted me to be a boxer.

How did you transition to MMA?

I saw everyone growing their skillsets and didn’t want to be left behind.

How did you get your fight name?

My coach said I couldn’t fight unless I have a job. So I started working as a barista and I am well known for my coffee.

What is your favourite technique, and why?

I love takedowns, I love throwing people around.

Who is your hero, and why?

Munoko Goire. He was my first coach and helped me and believed in my ability as a fighter.

What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

I love making coffee. Latte Art is one of my hobbies.

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

It means the world to me as it is giving me an opportunity to do what I love for money.
