A passionate grappler himself; when not preparing for upcoming fights you can find him rolling with some of Scotland’s best Jiu jitsu coaches focusing on technique rather than trying to win every roll which is something very unique about him among other MMA fighters who are more focused solely winning their fights rather than developing themselves further technically through grappling exchanges with experienced BJJ black belts .
