Last time I was in Singapore, I chatted a bit with [Sanford MMA head coach] Henri [Hooft] and he told me, 'Why don't you come out?' So I brought the family, brought the kids and my wife and spent some time here, first in Miami, and then we'll travel a bit more,”; he told.

I've been working on some new stuff, some interesting stuff, which they are helping me with, and there's guys from all organizations at the top level, so it's cool to spar with them, learn with them, train with everybody here. I've had the pleasure to do some rounds with Aung as well which is very nice. Everybody is very kind and very welcoming so I'm very happy to be here. I'll definitely be back another time,” he added.
