Biography

TRAINING: Pads and technique in the morning. Sparring, Cardio, wrestling, jiu-jitsu, kickboxing in the evening. It depends on the day.
 
When and why did you start training for fighting? I just tried it once with a friend. I was a bodybuilder at that point, and this small guy submitted me and owned me on the mats, so I had to learn this MMA, and that's how I fell in love with the sport.

What ranks and titles have you held? I am a purple belt in BJJ, but never really trained with a GI. I could have been a black belt now if I just trained BJJ.

Do you have any heroes? My parents.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? I am proud of myself to achieve and come this far after nine years of training MMA. I am the number three guy from Denmark and number four from Bosnia to ever come in the UFC, so it is a big deal for me. All my hard work and dedication paid off and now I share the scene with the best fighters in the world in the most prestigious organization.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No

What was your job before you started fighting? Factory worker, bouncer, MMA referee/judge

Favorite grappling technique: Love most of them

Favorite Striking technique: Liver shot, head shot - I have too many favorites
