Biography

TRAINING: Eat, train at 11, eat, rest, eat, train, eat, rest. First training session is hard fight training, the second training session is a variation of conditioning, strength work and technique.

Thoughts on opponent, Dave Herman?
He’s a big guy and has many wins.

When and why did you start training for fighting?
I started for fun with my friends in 1998.

What ranks and titles have you held? BJJ: Scandinavian, European and world champion. Grappling: Scandinavian and world champion. MMA: Scandinavian champion

Do you have any heroes? I admire a lot of people, but I don’t really have heroes

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means that I can make a living in my sport. To be able to fight for the UFC is good because you know you can trust them and that they are really serious with what they do. Then it’s easier to keep motivated for training and fighting when you can be a part of a big organization that has everything in order.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No

What was your job before you started fighting? I have had different jobs; the last few years I have been working with teenagers as a social worker.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? World BJJ Champion

Specific accomplishments in pro competition? World ADCC Champion

Ranks in any martial arts styles: Black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Favorite grappling technique: I have different favorites from different positions

•    Only man to defeat Roger Gracie in ADCC tournament

•    Five wins by submission, one by knockout – has finished all wins
