Lightweight fighter for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC)
I’m a mixed martial artist who fights in the world’s premier mixed martial arts (MMA) organisation, the UFC. I fight in the Lightweight division out of Team Kaobon in Liverpool, England, and my MMA record is currently 13-0.
My next fight will be at The Capital FM Arena in Nottingham on 29th September, I will be blogging each week leading up to the fight.
Monday consisted of wrestling and grappling during the day, followed by pads in the evening with one of my coaches. Tuesday involved sparring first thing in the morning, followed by drills and Thai pads after. It's definitely the hardest morning of the week in the gym. That evening I went into the gym for wrestling with Mike Grundy.
This week my training has successfully focused on getting everything ready for my upcoming fight. Each week covers many different MMA techniques and general fitness work; this is what I've covered over the last 7 days.
