“I'm always training and always trying to improve all aspects of my game. I am lucky that I get to train with BJJ World Champions like Alex Silva, Leandro Issa, and Bruno Pucci here at Evolve. I feel like I can become champion once again. I am determined to continue to get better, get back to my winning ways, and I know that I can make it back to the top.”
“I'm very determined to get a win and I'm confident I will be able to this time. My preparations are going great. I'm training well with my Evolve teammates. I'm confident I'll be able to get the win and I can't wait to get in there.”
“I think it's great that ONE has started the ONE Super Series. It's great that Muay Thai will be showcased on ONE's global stage. I'm excited for all the fans to be able to see the martial art that I grew up with and fell in love with as a child. I'm excited to have the opportunity to compete in both sports with ONE and look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead.”
