He talked about the experience of competing in BJJ:
Hey guys as you know I’ve been doing BJJ aka Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for a year now. I’m really enjoying it and competing in BJJ. I wanted to show you guys some of my brazilian jiu jitsu matches as beginner white belt and some of my basic white belt submissions. Being a strongman is my main goal at the moment but BJJ is a secondary goal of mine and I will continue to compete in it the rest of my life..
