When and why did you start training for fighting? I started out as an amateur boxer, around 2004 when I was 16 years old. I learned Muay Thai & had amateur fights also. After some time, I became a part of the Wushu Philippine team (the Wushu that's just like
Kickboxing, not the one that involves swords). I then learned MMA and started fighting in
URCC. Around 2013, I joined PXC until I became the flyweight champion on January 16, 2016. I became a fighter because it was my only way of earning money and helping my family. After winning so many times, I realized that I can make a career out of it and become one of the best, most successful and most inspirational fighters in the world.

- Origin of nickname – From manager - “The reason for this ring name is that every opponent he faces, he beats. Every opponent he faces and beats cannot recover right away and usually they cannot go back to their original condition (e.g. when his previous opponents get knocked out by him, they usually have broken jaw or face, making them not fight for a long time). Just like buildings when they are demolished, they cannot go back to their original state anymore. Hence, the name "The Demolition Man."
