When did you begin to take MMA seriously as a hobby and then as a potential profession:
Not until my 3rd armature fight. People would always ask me what I wanted to get out of fighting, why I did it and where I wanted to go with it. I would always reply with “I’m just taking it as it comes and having fun” but now I’m fully aware of my potential and I’m committed to becoming one of the best.
Favourite aspect of training or favourite session of the week, and why:
my favourite session is the strength and conditioning circuit, I love the challenge and the pain that comes with it, I love the feeling of having to push the extra mile to get the work done.

my dedication to the sport and my training. I pride myself on being able to train while everyone else is resting on a Sunday. While people sleep in I’m getting better and mastering my craft.
How would you describe your fighting style:
im not just a striker, a grappler or a wrestler. I’m a mixed martial artist and that what i train to be. I want to be able to stand with the best, wrestle with the best and roll with the best. This is a never ending journey of mastery.
What is your favourite sport and why:
MMA because there’s a never ending amount of information and skills to learn. You’ll never run out of things to learn and techniques to practice. It’s a life long journey that will never get boring.

When fans see your name on a fight poster, what should they expect:
They should expect fast paced, controlled chaos. A fight full of highlights.

I believe wherever the fight plays out, that’s where I beat him. I don’t think he’s on my level
