    What ranks and titles have you held? Sportfight Champion and a lot of victories at Abu Dhabi Combat Club

    Do you have any heroes? Chuck Liddell is a guy who I have looked up to for some time. I met him as a champion already and he has taught me a lot.  I admire him as a fighter inside and outside of the cage.
