Sid – I started at the age of 12, I was a boxer man; I just wanted to do boxing. Tyson was my guy, Mike Tyson. Different idols at different stages. When I started Muay Thai then I wanted to be like Tyrone Spong and recently you know its Brazilian jiu-jitsu so you get Marcelo Garcia, Rickson Gracie. These were the ideals and role models that I had.
