TRAINING: I’m up at 9 and I’m at the gym from 10.30 till 12. At 12.30, it’s either sprints or lifting. After that, lunch, then home to rest. Back in the gym from 6.30 till 8:30, then home, dinner and bed.

Thoughts on opponent, Calvin Kattar? To be fair, he’s good. I’m not gonna take nothing away from him. He’s a good striker and everybody knows that, his record’s good in the UFC and he’s a tough fight. He’s a top 20 opponent, but I think there’s a lot of holes in his game and I don’t think we’ve seen all of his game yet.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I was leaving school and like most kids you don’t know what you really want to do. And the year I was leaving school, my friend showed me a Tito Ortiz fight and a Chuck Liddell fight, and I was like, ‘What is this?’ And I was hooked. I was never a fighter, never a tough kid, I liked school. And I went down to the local MMA gym and started there.

What ranks and titles have you held? Cage Warriors lightweight champion with three successful title defenses.

Do you have any heroes? I’ve got lots of heroes. I love watching Justin Gaethje. He goes out with abandon and puts it all on the line. He wears his heart on his sleeve and you’ve got to admire that. That’s a true fighter. Old school, it’s Matt Hughes. Straight to the point, just a tough, tough fighter.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? The UFC means everything. This has been my dream since I was a very young boy. At 26 years of age, not many people can say they’ve completed their dream. The dream now is to get a title.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Qualified football coach

What was your job before you started fighting? I turned pro at 17, so before that I did a little bit of laboring.
