When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training at the age of seven years old. Since I moved around a lot, I was always the new kid. So I had to defend myself, especially when bullying and race was a big issue growing up. But the moment I went to MMA was when my rights as a father were taken away from me in 2013 and the way the judge looked at me, like I had no value. So that’s when I chose something I know I’m great at and I pushed hard to get my son, Eli Edward Ewell, back and to gain more value in my life so that people will look at me.
