being from Liverpool, Does the Olympia feel Like home to you?
"Yes, it does, It's right on my doorstep, so there's no extra stresses involved"

"Whatever it takes to win I will do, but I'm looking to show people I'm still a finisher as well as being able to go all the way"
Q: With the Majority of your wins coming via submission, do you see an advantage on the ground with your opponent or are you happy to stand and trade with him?
