Shivam Verma is a UFC author at EssentiallySports. This combat sports fan and active Jiu-Jitsu and kickboxing practitioner, who is also a media graduate, has worked with various news and media organizations. By combining his interest and educational degree, Shivam is on a mission to unite his two passions- love for writing and sports. He feels that mixed martial arts are about the technique and movements of people who have spent their entire lives training and perfecting it. Hence, he is more inclined towards technical fighters like Georges St-Pierre, Charles Oliveira, Khabib, and Kamaru Usman. Apart from writing, Shivam seeks to work on fiction and non-fiction projects as a film-maker.
