Give us some background into your MMA career and how you got started?
I’ve always been involved in some kind of contact sport, MMA was the next challenge.

Have you changed anything up in your training and preparation in order to face Elvis Moyo?
Yes. Every fight is a different game plan and approach to the different fighting skills of the opponent.

What do think your opponent’s strong points are?
Elvis has just come off a title shot, and we have seen that he can go the distance.

And his weak points?
He is a stationary boxer, very flat footed and that is what I will expose.

How can fight fans expect you to come into this fight?
My fans can expect an exciting fight and I will give it all I have.

And words for Elvis before fight night?
I don’t believe in smack talk before a fight, it will come back and bite you in the ass. I do the talking on the night in the cage.

Any shout outs?
I would like to say thank you to all my family, friends, fans, and sponsors, and especially to my coaches and teammates at Mayhem RDX and The Tribe gyms.
