Biography

Training: I train about 2-3 times a day. Grappling or striking in the morning, MMA training at night, strength and conditioning at the end of the day. 

When and why did you start training for fighting? I was put into TKD after being bullied in middle school and when I turned 18 I wanted to become competitive with martial arts so MMA just became a natural progression. 

What ranks and titles have you held? Nitro Bantamweight Champion, K-Oz Bantamweight Champion, No. 1 Bantamweight in Australia

Do you have any heroes? Bruce Lee

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It is a huge accomplishment to be fighting on the main stage of MMA. It took me eight years to get here and there's no looking back.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I started college to become an engineer but then realized it wasn't for me, so I quit to chase the dream of being a fighter.

What was your job before you started fighting? I was a computer tech for Geek Squad

Ranks in any martial arts styles: Black belt in TKD, Purple belt in BJJ, Green belt in Jud

Favorite grappling technique: Seoi Nage

Favorite Striking technique: Spin hook kick

• Pro since 2006

• Nine wins by KO, four by submission (2 RNC, armbar, triangle)

• Seven first round finishes

• Video of 25-second knockout of Julian Rabaud went viral

• Origin of nickname: “It didn't matter where I went or who I met, anyone who kind of got to know me called me ‘Ben 10’ so it just stuck with me.”
