WHEN AND WHY DID YOU START TRAINING FOR FIGHTING?
I started MMA in 2005 but I had Muaythai experience and also trained Shaolin Kung Fu, as well as some karate and judo. I started MMA after an experience in high school; I was messing around with a few friends, testing my fighting skills and got armbarred. I was so fascinated that a relatively weak guy could submit me.
WHAT RANKS AND TITLES HAVE YOU HELD:
Amateur MMA record of 4-1 as well as collecting amateur titles in grappling: SASCA grappling champion in my weight class in November 2010, and undefeated in amateur Muaythai, 6 wins.
WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN NOT TRAINING OR FIGHTING?
Spend time with my wife, the love of my life. Or I watch Muaythai or MMA fights, or martial arts movies.
