Shane Young talks to Fight News Australia in the lead up to his fight against Austin Arnett at UFC 234 in Melbourne.
Young discusses his excitement to be back in the cage after a layoff, City Kickboxing being more than just a gym, wanting to be a role model to young Maori in New Zealand and much more.
My earliest combat sports memory is watching David Tua knock people out with his left hook. I am extremely passionate about combat sports in Australia and my home country of New Zealand and I endeavour to grow the profile of martial arts and its athletes in both countries. Persistent Brazilian jiu-jitsu battler.
