TRAINING: I start training at 10:00am for about an hour and a half. I focus on stand-up at this time. Afterwards, I eat and rest. At 2:30 for two and a half hours, I do MMA. I eat and rest until 9:00pm; this is when I do conditioning and weight training for about an hour and a half.
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.
