Thoughts on opponent, Elvis Sinosic? Not much!!! Nevertheless, I’m excited to take on this fight and get the chance to beat Elvis up. You just couldn’t say no to a chance like this.
Training: MMA every day
When and why did you start training for fighting? My Father is one of Australia’s most successful and recognised Jiu-Jitsu instructors and he has been teaching Jiu-Jitsu as a full-time occupation for around 35 years, so having done Jiu-Jitsu for the best part of my life, fighting seemed to make a logical lifestyle choice at the time.

Do you have any heroes? My father is a safe call.
