When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training MMA from 17 years old.  I was training boxing and wrestling when I was a child. When I was 15 years old, I watched my first MMA event, it was Robbie Lawler vs Rory MacDonald. That fight was super crazy. I think this sport is a more appropriate sport for me. Then I started training MMA after two years.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? A dream come true. I will chase the belt if I can fight in UFC
