Biography

TRAINING: A typical day starts at 12 noon with conditioning work or a road run with my dog. Then rest for a few hours. Back to Lions Pride in the early evening for pad and technical work, then sparring at night. This differs from day to day with BJJ, wrestling and Judo.


When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training in 2008 with no martial arts background. I started training because it was interesting to me and I thought I’d be good at it.

What ranks and titles have you held?
UK Light Heavyweight Number 1 - UCMMA LHW Champion

Do you have any heroes? Mike Tyson, because I liked his style and aggression!

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means everything to me. It’s what I’ve worked for since I’ve started training, but getting there is not enough; I’ll keep working until I am champion and a UFC legend.

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

What was your job before you started fighting?
Car Dealer and worked in a Car Rental Business.
