Biographie

TRAINING: Usually I train twice a day, six days a week. I alternate between boxing, wrestling, jiu-jitsu and endurance training. This time, preparation is a bit more compressed than usual due to the short specific preparation time, but since I train year-round anyway, it should not be much of an issue.
 
Thoughts on opponent, Nad Narimani? He's a stocky scrapper who hasn't been very active as of late. I hope he comes to fight and not to snuggle.

When and why did you start training for fighting? My older brother is the one who got me interested in sports. We enrolled in taekwondo class together at age six and then eventually moved on to kickboxing when we were ten.

What ranks and titles have you held? Fair FC Bantamweight Champion, Top Ten Champions Bantamweight Champion

Do you have any heroes? My role models in MMA are Jose Aldo and Cain Velasquez. I admire Jose for his professionalism and consistency - to stay on top of his division for as long as he did while fighting the best in the world is just super impressive. Cain, on the other hand, was arguably the best heavyweight of his generation. His ability to go hard for 25 minutes and break his opponents mentally and physically with his grinding style is what impresses me most with him.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? When I started competing in MMA six years ago, my lone goal was to earn my opportunity to fight in the UFC. I have worked really hard and never lost sight of that goal. With the support of my friends and family, I was able to fulfill my dream. When I got the news that I would be getting this opportunity, I couldn't believe it at first. It was a very special moment for me.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? School of Hard Knocks, University of the Streets

What was your job before you started fighting? I trained as a car mechanic and also worked as a forklift driver and martial arts instructor.

Specific accomplishments in pro competition? Ranked #1 in Germany and in the Middle East at 135lbs

Ranks in any martial arts styles: I've wrestled for German Div. II club KSV Witten 07, green belt in Taekwondo as a kid.

Favorite grappling technique: All different kinds of choke attacks

Favorite Striking technique: One-two punch

 
  • Pro since 2013
  • Eight wins by KO, two by submission (2 RNC)
  • Six first round finishes
  • Origin of nickname: “My sister came up with it.”
