TRAINING: This training camp has been my toughest so far. I have been with Alexander Gustafsson and Andreas Michael in Vegas and trained with great fighters as there is a ton of sparring partners here!
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started to train MMA 2006 after my good friend Tchavdar Pavlov took me to Hilti. Over there I met my longtime manager Manos Terzitane and he has helped me to get here under his guidance together with all my sparring partners and trainers… The next step is to get the UFC belt!
