I first became interested in Mixed Martial Arts back in 2000. I’ve been involved in martial arts of one kind or another since being a teenager, when I first visited my local Taekwon-do class. At university, I took up Jiu Jitsu, did a little judo and also tried numerous other styles, but always felt there was something missing. When I saw a documentary about MMA, I knew I’d found what I was looking for.
My first fight was in 2002. Now, I’m a professional fighter with a record of 13-2. My most recent fight was against Aisling Daly on 2nd June 2012. I am sponsored by PhD Nutrition, Scramble, London Fight Store and Funkygums mouthguards. I do my strength and conditioning work at Strength and Performance Gym in Stockport; and Tim Budd from Global Therapies has the unenviable task of keeping me in one piece.
