 MMA

When and why did you start training for fighting?

I started doing MMA not until like 4yrs ago but I started off being a boxer and I’ve been doing a lot of boxing with small promotion in Alaska. Why I start training? It was a good self defense at the time and I was motivated to keep going because I wanted to learn more. So my striking coach kept telling to keep coming and to start MMA so I did. Never thought I would like it but I end loving it! One of the main reason why I wanted to fight is because I want to use the platform to send out a message to all island people out there that like to cause trouble out in the street that THAT is not the answer to everything. Every where I fight I will always make a name for myself and my family and I want others to do the same and not doing stupid and bad decisions where it cause them their families and everything they have.
