In 2010, he won the Austrailia Mick Cronin Medal as 'Group 7 player' with the "Warrilla Gorillas" team, winning the Rugby Premiership of 2011 with the same team. 

 
Deciding to finish rugby in 2012, he would go back to his combat roots and start competing in MMA fights within his first year of fulltime training, turning pro later on. He splits his time between "Freestyle Fighting Gym" of Windang, "Tiger Muay Thai" in Phuket, Thailand.

 
from 2012 - 2016 he would amass a 13 - 1 record across Oceana, Asia and Austrailia, defeating notable opponents and becoming PXC-featherweight Champion, as well as Audtrailian Fighting Chamoionship-featherweight Champion. 

 
He made his UFC debut at UFC Fight Night 101 in Austrailia, with a 2nd round stoppage of Yusuke Kasuya. 

 
At UFC 110, he would meet another Japanese veteran in Mizuto Hirota, at home once again in Austrailia. With a victory in the contest, he move to 3 - 0 against fighters from Japan.
