Hello mate, I’d like to start off with asking how’s training going for your fight against Mark Weir at UCMMA 29?
Hi mate, training’s going great, I’m feeling strong and more powerful than ever.
It was announced a few weeks ago that you were fighting Weir, but only recently was it been announced that it would be a part of the middleweight tournament, how proud are you that you’re part of the tournament, and how thankful are you to the promotion?
Yeah, I’m really grateful to UCMMA and to machine a sous Dave for putting me in for this. I've had a tough time this year with losing my mum in May, but this opportunity has given me something to focus on and something to get motivated for.
You are in good form, and Weir is a big name in the MMA world, what are you expecting from him come August 18th?
It’s funny fighting someone who I look up to, and it's quite an honour to be in cage with him. I know he's got great stand up but I’m not sure if he will cope with my power.
He is coming off a massive UK-1 knockout loss to Louis King, are you looking best online casino to finish it in the same fashion?
Of course, that's what I do!
Without looking past any opponents, what would it mean to become UCMMA middleweight champion?
It would mean the world to me to be champ at such a great organisation, to be the man that every body's coming for, but once I get that belt they will have to kill me to take it from me
Trademark question: do you LOVE2FIGHT?
