From a young age he was determined to make something of himself and worked hard at anything he did.

At age 17, Caolan began training in karate and kickboxing before discovering MMA when he saw some friends fighting at the local gym. After training for a few months Caolan decided to compete professionally with his first amateur fight taking place just one year later in 2009 and winning via TKO. During this time Caolan also trained Jiu-Jitsu with notable coaches Craig Greene & Peter Queally which led him to gain more confidence in the sport as well as helping him become much more comfortable with submission grappling specialists during fights.
