An articulate and thoughtful young man, Dan Ginnane’s exterior belies the inner fire that drives him towards his destiny – to be the UFC World Champion in his chosen sport of Mixed Martial Arts.
Life didn’t start too well for Dan. His father was absent from early on and during his early teens, he was forced into foster care when his mother could no longer look after him.
It may have been easier to blame the world and events around him. But after spending some time in Dan’s company, this is certainly not the Dan Ginnane way.
Rather, Dan utilizes his background to provide an insightful perspective on his approach to life – that he, and only he, is responsible for becoming the success in sport and life that he so desires.
Working nights to make ends meet, and so that he can train during the day, Dan has a steely commitment to his combat sport that drives him towards his goal.
6 days a week, Dan throws himself into gruelling workout sessions that can last for 3 hours or more.
Hand selecting specialist coaching and training partners, Dan is determined to surround himself with people that can help him reach the top.
With a fledgling fight career underway, and a training routine that borders on the obsessive, Dan Ginnane is living and breathing a chosen lifestyle that gives him every opportunity to reach the pinnacle in combat sport.
