At age of 18, Israel enrolled himself into a computer science degree but two years later found out that he isn’t built for this work and started taking kickboxing seriously. He went on to establish himself as one of the biggest amateur kickboxers with a record of 32-0 and finally turned professional in China at age of 20. Israel has now changed his career thrice and has gone from kickboxer to professional boxer to a Mixed martial artist. In this article, we will discuss his lifestyle, career, net worth.
