Where do you train? Trojan Freefighters, Dragonslair
What are your strengths as a fighter? My pressure is relentless and I like to keep a high tempo during my fights.
How / why did you start training in MMA? Initially, I wanted to get fit to join the Royal Marines, but I was nowhere near fit enough, so turned to wrestling to build up my strength and fitness. Wrestling then took me to MMA and I’ve been hooked ever since.
How long have you been training in MMA? 5 years
Why do you love MMA? MMA is by far the best sport in the world. Two men go in there, throw down and most times, one walks out a winner. There’s a lot of freedom in the sport – you can mix up different styles and techniques. It’s real fate.
Why do you think you will be the next Ultimate Fighter? I hope I can win the competition. I’ll definitely be trying my best.
Do you think the Australia / UK rivalry is going to affect the competition? Honestly, everyone's there for the contract really. No one really cares about the rivalry as long as they win. The Smashes being a play on The Ashes - as far as cricket goes - you’ve seen it for yourself; it’s a boring, boring sport.
