Biography

TRAINING: My training always consists of a mix of striking, wrestling, and BJJ. It’s no different for this fight than any other. I am in the gym constantly improving and learning and getting better.

I started training when I was very young because martial arts have always been my passion.

Said Yves: “I bet you can go to Haiti and there isn’t one guy who doesn’t like Kung Fu movies. Every Friday around 2 or 3 o’clock in the afternoon they used to show old Kung Fu movies and the streets were empty.”

•    Gifted Painter (holds a college degree in illustration, design and 3D animation).
