Who do you train with? I mainly train with my brother, Ryan “Coconut” Mondala.

FIGHTER BIOGRAPHY

Do you have any heroes?
My heroes consists of Enson and Egan Inoue, Mirko Cro Cop, Mike Tyson, BJ Penn, Robbie Lawler and a lot more fighters. They set the standard for heart and skill in my opinion.

What is your favorite fighting techniques?
I am a proud southpaw so I love using my left punches and kicks as well as utilizing the clinch.

What does it mean for you to fight in X1 World Events?
I grew up watching a lot of the X1 events wishing I could go to more live events at the time. So to be able to perform in their cage means so much to me. Just seeing it grow into much more than just a local show too is very humbling as well.

What was your job before you started fighting?
Before I started fighting I was a Truss Stacker at Honsador Truss. Fighting helped open up doors to an actual, better, construction job. Then eventually coaching what I love to do at UFC gym Mililani.
