Neil Grove

MMA Fighter

                      

 

 

1.) What advice do you have for an aspiring MMA Fighter?

Have some form of martial arts background. So many young guys just start training in MMA. Having karate, boxing, jiu jitsu or wrestling, makes it easier to make the transition. It also advocates discipline. I've been to a few MMA gyms in my 6 years of fighting, and one thing that is rife in these gyms is the lack of discipline, respect, and humility. Something I'm proud to have adopted through training is my Sensei Gavin Mullholland, my Mauy Thai coach Steve Gladstone, and my Sambo coach Anton Davidovich.

 

2.) What is your career highlight so far?

Winning the British HW title against James McSweeny and fighting in the finals of the Bellator Fighting Championships HW tournament for the title!

 

3.) If you were not an MMA Fighter what would you be? why?

I would be teaching Goju Ryu because I probaly would have had my 3rd Dan by now.

 

4.) Who were your heroes growing up?

Rugby players mainly, all South Africans of course. I liked Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali as well!

 

5.) What was your favorite subject in school? why?

Mathematics, I was good at it and I loved my teacher Mrs. Smith, she was kind, beautiful and very patient. 

 

6.) What do you like to do in your free time?

I love relaxing by watching movies, movies are my favorite! I also go to the gym and help new fighters with their striking and takedown defence.
