Phil De Fries

TRAINING: A typical day will usually start with drilling and sparring wrestling and jits with pad work and conditioning in the evening, alternated with sprints and full MMA. I have been getting a lot of sparring in with some talented amateur boxers of late as well

When and why did you start training for fighting?
I started practicing BJJ at 14 and became addicted to martial arts. I’ve always thought fighters were kinda cool, so I just wanted to be part of it.

What ranks and titles have you held? BJJ purple belt with 4 stripes, Seni purple belt champion, Urban Gorillas purple belt champion, London open purple belt champion , Northern Open champion x2, Supremacy FC heavyweight British champion, Ultimate Warrior Challenge, Heavyweight British champion.

Do you have any heroes? Just all the guys I train with

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means so much to me; it’s the ultimate stage to showcase your ability.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn?

What was your job before you started fighting? Drugs advice worker
