When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training at 15 years old because I wanted to be the best fighter on the planet one day like the legends I would watch on TV.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means I can carry out my goal of being the best fighter on the planet. It also means I can represent my country Afghanistan and make my people proud.

What was your job before you started fighting? I went straight into fighting.
