Biography

TRAINING: The typical day of training differs in specifics, but usually remains the same in focus. I am fighting a tall southpaw fighter... I am very comfortable fighting southpaws and have outstruck every one I have faced to date, all by TKO. As the last month approaches, I am focusing more on game plan and weight cutting. I will be coming down from 225 lbs for this fight.

Thoughts on opponent, Roger Narvaez? Roger is a big and tall middleweight, with a black belt in both BJJ & Taekwondo. With that said, big trees fall hard...I feel my pace, as with those I've faced before him, will be too much for the Texan. He will wilt under pressure. I am the away team looking to play spoiler, again, as I have finished every hometown hero I have ever faced.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training MMA after my first year of University. I was already enlightening the mind, I decided the body should follow…I fell in love with the sport instantly.

What ranks and titles have you held? TUF Nations middleweight winner. NAAFS & ECC Middleweight Champion. Technically, I've been a purple belt in BJJ for 3 years. But the reality is, I don't train Gi. I am an MMA fighter and train in Vale Tudo...under Chute Boxe legend Sergio Cunha. (I have a dark blue belt in Muay Thai, which is two away from black). I am a mixed martial artist from Day One. I win by drowning my opponent in my pace and sprinkle violence.

Do you have any heroes? Outside of martial arts, my heroes are my parents…They have done so much for my brother and I, creating the people we are today. We are truly blessed to have their love and support.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Being in the UFC means everything to me, as it is where I have always dreamed to be since becoming a martial artist. I believe I am ready for the challenge.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I have a B.A Degree in Creative Advertising at Humber College

What was your job before you started fighting? I model, act and do stunt work on the side…six Harlequin romance covers so far!

Specific accomplishments in pro competition? Greatest hair in MMA.

Favorite striking technique: Anything done by Anderson Silva

• Team Canada on TUF Nations

• Pro since 2011

• Five wins by KO, one by submission (RNC)

• Two first round finishes

• Origin of nickname: “I'm Greek, and the Spartan (Shoe) fits! The name was first given to me by my original coach, who was Greek as well, and he said I had the true Spartan spirit in my blood. Ah - oh!”
