When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training as a teen and had my first fight as a late teenager.

I also studied abroad for a stint in Georgia Tech in Atlanta (2010) and briefly started Law School Postgrad in 2012 before deciding to pursue the UFC dream to my full potential.
