Biography

TRAINING: MMA, weightlifting, boxing, conditioning - coming into this fight, I have been doing everything possible to be in the best shape of my life.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I was always interested in MMA and wanted to train because I was such a big fan of PRIDE.  But there were no places for me to train at that time. In 2008, when a Jiu-Jitsu academy opened up in my neighborhood I started training there immediately.

Do you have any heroes?  Chang Seob Lee

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC As an MMA fighter, it is a dream come true to be fighting in the biggest promotion in the world.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I recently graduated from Gumi Kyungun University with a degree in Security.

What was your job before you started fighting? I started training to be an MMA fighter right out of high school.
