At FSC 20 you take on Shah Kamali. A heavyweight bout of explosive prepositions, which the fans will definitely be looking forward to seeing at the Crystal Palace national sports centre. The heavyweight division of MMA, like many other combat sports, is always a fan favourite. What do you make of your opponent for your debut?


“Yes, as everyone knows it can all end in a second, so it makes for an exciting fight. I have nothing personal against my opponent. However, come fight night he is standing between me and victory, HE WILL BE TAKEN OUT.”

Has MMA always been part of your long term plans while studying Martial arts, or has the prospect of fighting in the cage something that manifested throughout your training over the years?

Other than your inclusion on the night, are there any match-ups in particular that you’re looking forward to witnessing come December 18th?


Fightstar has put on an action-packed card which is not to be missed. Many great wars.”
