Daniel recently fulfilled a major step towards achieving his dream of becoming a Champion when he signed with the World’s premiere Mixed Martial Arts Promotion, the UFC.
In his debut bout he submitted Nate Coy in impressive fashion by first round Triangle at UFC Fight Night 80 in the Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas. Daniel’s journey to the lights of Vegas and the heights of the UFC has been a long and hard one to say the least, but for Daniel it’s only just the beginning.
Taking up Boxing at the tender age of 16 Daniel has been working tirelessly to be the best fighter on the planet for over 12 years, and impressively only 5 of those have been spent training and studying Mixed Martial Arts. Born in Croydon, South London Daniel grew up on a deprived estate with his mum and ten siblings before moving to Bristol at age 9. Unfortunately, things were only marginally better and Daniel, who grew up with without his father around began to find himself drifting down the wrong path with the wrong people.
