When and why did you start training for fighting? I started at a very young age to steal girlfriends and that led to altercations. I had two alternatives - to stop stealing girls or learn to fight. It is obvious what path I decided to go. 

Do you have any heroes? My hero is myself in three years’ time when I am the first ever UFC champion from Sweden. 

What would it mean for you to fight in the UFC? UFC has made MMA mainstream. I want to call myself the best in the world, and in order for me to do so, I must attain the prestigious UFC gold.

What was your job before you started fighting? Full-time lover 

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? 24-3, European Champion 2018.
