Physical sports became a necessity for his aggression outlet. He started training in the gym when he turned 14-year-old. he used to manage two sports at once: rugby and martial arts but a dangerous tackle on the pitch confined him to a hospital bed for his broken leg, a week before his title bout. This made him hate rugby.
Soon, after the recovery, he took a loan to join a friend in Thailand and started his training session and his journey to the Pro MMA began.
