Biography

TRAINING: We have been prioritizing defending takedowns since he comes from a judo background. It is very tiring, but we are getting to the peak of training. During the afternoon, we have been doing physical preparation, with an emphasis on endurance training in order to maintain high energy levels throughout the fight. We have carefully planned my diet as well so I won't have any trouble losing the remaining weight the week of the event.

Do you have any heroes? My mother
