Biography

 TRAINING: Mornings are usually either cardio or conditioning. Evenings are skills based, Grappling or striking.

Thoughts on opponent, Daniel Teymur? Daniel looks like a good opponent. He comes from a quality gym and his record speaks for itself. I feel like he's not fought a great deal of quality opposition, though, and has only fought on regional shows in Sweden.

When and why did you start training for fighting? Initially it was curiosity. There was a vale tudo gym upstairs from the boxing gym I attended. The combination of styles interested me, and I caught on fast. I fought at an amateur level after about three months of training.

What ranks and titles have you held? Headhunters Lightweight Champion, EFC Featherweight World Champion

Do you have any heroes? Not really

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It's a big deal for me, to be honest, especially getting to debut at home in Scotland. I haven't fought in Scotland since 2014. It wasn't too long ago that I used to joke about getting in the UFC, but it just goes to show you what can be achieved when you get your head down and work hard.

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

What was your job before you started fighting? I still have my job - I work for a company called Dunedin Security. I'm the head of security at a nightclub in Edinburgh City center called Why Not. I also work in the office for the company three days a week.

Favorite grappling technique: All kinds of chokes.

Favorite Striking technique: A clean right hand
