I’d like to start this off by thanking you for taking the time to speak to me today David and also to congratulate you on your recently announced inclusion for the Bellator London card.
“Hello, Thank you for reaching out!”
I hope training camp has been going well in the build-up to your scheduled return to the cage?
“The training camp has been great. since I was able to follow it on from the European title bout that I had in Germany in March.”
What does it mean to you to be making your debut for one of the biggest stages of them all with Bellator MMA?
“For me, it is a dream come true to be able to step on the canvas of Bellator even more that it is on a stage like Wembley.”
A string of cancellations has only given fight fans the opportunity to witness you in action once since 2018. What has driven you to keep active throughout this time?
“The truth is that I was left at the gates a few years ago. and with all this disaster of the last few years, I hoped that the opportunity would come.”
Being able to compete again must be a tremendous feeling, is activity your main focus for 2022?
“I always try to be active as I compete in various disciplines like boxing, K1 and MMA. keeps me alive being in the game.”
On May 13th, You take on London Shootfighters Arunas Andriuskevicus at what’s set to be a night of pure unadulterated organised violence at one of the world’s biggest platforms for athletes at Wembley Stadium.
What do you make of your opponent leading up to your highly anticipated return?
“In regards to Arunas, I have a lot of respect for him and his career. He comes from a great team of great champions. He is a fighter who manages time and distance very well. He has a good striking game and does not get hit a lot. Honestly, I have no fight plan.”
Fighting on Scott Coker’s return across the Atlantic could potentially open many more opportunities for you on future cards. Is there anyone on the current roster that you’d like to potentially be matched against if this comes to fruition?
“On the subject of the athletes that I would like to fight, I don’t have anyone in particular, just being able to fight again in Bellator would be great for my career, I don’t care who I face.”
Without giving too much away what steps have you been taking to make sure you walk out with your arm raised on your Bellator debut?
“Honestly, I have no fight plan. I will go out and fight and do a good job.”
Other than your inclusion on the night are there any matchups in particular that you’re looking forward to witnessing on the Bellator London Card?
“I will keep an eye on all the fights on the card, they are all special to me that night.”
It’s been a great pleasure speaking with you today David, I wish you all the best for your bout and future with Bellator.
Last but not least do you have a message for the fans that will be in attendance and anybody you’d like to give a shout-out to?
“I want to thank everyone who made it possible for me to fight in London and to all those who help the sport grow.”
