When and why did you start training for fighting? Started with judo when I was four. My parents made me do it because I had too much energy. Started MMA seven years ago.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Fighting in the best organization in the world is a huge achievement, but it’s only the beginning of a great career ahead of me.

What was your job before you started fighting? Coaching/ teaching MMA those past few years. Beforehand, I was working in a restaurant in Scotland as a waiter to learn English for 18 months.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? 3-0

Specific accomplishments in pro competition? My last three fights were in three different weight classes due to lack of opponents. (December 2022 205lbs, Feb 2023 185lbs, May 2023 170lbs)
