Bio

I started fighting as a means to focus my life as I felt I was steadily heading down the wrong road. I lacked goals or direction and wasn’t one for normal life – I couldn’t see myself doing any jobs for long, or even getting a job for that matter.

 

I had watched loads of MMA on TV and got inspired to give it a try after seeing local MMA fighters who had made a name for themselves on the big shows, and were also making a living from fighting.

 

I already knew I could fight before I walked into my first martial arts class – Fighting is in my blood as I have numerous fighters in my family, mostly boxers on my mother’s side. My dad is also involved in martial arts and is a 5th Dan black belt in karate.

 

Despite this background I had limited martial arts training but with growing up in Nottingham, it wasn’t hard to find “sparring partners” which made me realise I could scrap.

I had my first fight a few months after I started training which I lost but I didn’t let it deter me; I had caught the bug. I loved the buzz of getting into the ring in front of a crowd and felt for once that I could actually achieve something. I just needed to learn more about my new found craft.

 

When I did decide to take MMA a bit more seriously than a few classes a week, I found Rough House where some of the UK’s top MMA fighters sparred and honed their skills. I jumped into the deep end and trained hard, trying to keep up with them.

 

From 2009 to 2012 I fought as an amateur and finished that part of my career with a record of 12-3-0 with 7 KOs. I also won and defended the Fight UK amateur welterweight title, had 2 wins in K1 and fought abroad twice.

 

After over a year off due to injury, I climbed back into the cage, this time as a pro fighter and fought on one of the top shows around, Cage Warriors. The fight card was held abroad in Jordan, where I fought the local up and coming hotshot, to open the main card. I was lucky to have this chance and didn’t want to waste it. I ended up scoring one of the fastest KO’s of my career at 31 seconds.

 

That was the start of my pro MMA career.
