When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training just by chance six years ago. I never had a goal to train martial arts before.

What ranks and titles have you held? M-1 Global lightweight champion

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It’s a dream come true. I come from a small village and I made it to the biggest organization in the world.
I want to be example for kids - if I can do it, you can do it too.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? I won pretty much all amateur competitions in army hand-to-hand combat.
