Biographie

TRAINING: Morning gym session, coffee with the coach (Brian Gallacher), fuel up for an afternoon session, fuel up again and back in to train at night.
 
Thoughts on opponent, Khalil Rountree Jr.? This is a great matchup style wise for me. It’s the classic striker vs grappler....but wait, this grappler can box like a young (very young) Marvin Hagler.
 
When and why did you start training for fighting? I was dragged to a Jits class by a friend five years ago and found I was pretty good at holding half-naked sweaty guys to the ground. From there I started boxing a year later and had my first fight about that time, winning with a triangle choke.

What ranks and titles have you held? As an amateur, I held British and Scottish LHW championships. As a pro, I held British, European and BAMMA world LHW titles. I was Abu Dhabi European world champion as Purple belt. Five-time Scottish BJJ champion. Five-time British BJJ champion. Brown belt in BJJ. 

Do you have any heroes?  Arnold Schwarzenegger

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? When I stared training, I had no idea I would have been fighting on the biggest stage for MMA and it still doesn't feel real. I have sacrificed so much to get to this point, and it means so much to me and my team.

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

What was your job before you started fighting? I have been teaching personal development in high schools for the last six years.
