I am very pumped that all my people can come support.

The most satisfaction I ever get is seeing my coaches and my close family and friends happy when I win…I do it for the happiness it brings them. I get my happiness from that. Like when my coaches or my friends talk about me… I do it for that…that brings me so much happiness.”

He also opened up about his drugs and alcohol addiction which he went through in 2010 around his 22nd birthday. Caving in into the peer pressure, Gillespie got addicted and six months later he had to check himself into a chemical dependency program and as a result, he has been sober for the past nine years by turning his mind to fighting.

Absolutely, MMA gave me an outlet, (it) gave me a target to aim my behaviour at.”
