About 5 Rounds With…: “5 Rounds With…” is designed to be a quick fire interview with MMA fighters from across the globe. Questions are focused on getting to know a bit more about the person behind the fighter and allow the fighters to answer something different rather than the run of the mill questions that they are constantly bombarded with. I hope to build a catalogue of interviews, using the same questions across the board to create a familiar feel for regular readers.

If you had to live on a desert island which film, video game and TV show would you take?
Last video game I played was in the 90s Mortal Kombat! So would have to be that. I think I’d take a comedy maybe the hangover. I’m into pawn stars at the moment.
If you couldn’t be a Mixed Martial Artist, what would your preferred career choice be?
I’d definitely be a golfer.
If you could fight any celebrity not related to MMA, who would it be and why?
Tough question, no one really gets to me that much, maybe Vinnie Jones see if he really is a hard man lol.
What is your favourite beverage, alcohol or otherwise?
Don’t drink much now but used to be a nice cold Corona, nowadays its water.
Please finish the following sentence: I love MMA because…
…It’s giving me a chance to give my daughter a better life.
I am sure you will all join me in wishing Phil the best of luck on August 3rd!
