MMA big-hitter Dylan Andrews has told of the anguish he brings into his fights.

Andrews’ parents were drug dealers. They grew marijuana everywhere.

“My bedroom, yeah,” Andrews said to reporters this week, “cannabis everywhere.

“My family grew drugs to make ends meet, to survive really. And where I slept was like the hydroponic room.

“It was tough because I could never have friends over. I couldn’t really have friends at all.

“My parents, they were always worried about some kid talking and getting them arrested. So it wasn’t much of a life.

“As a little kid, you should wake each day to a hug. But how can that happen if you’re the only happy person in the house?”

Dylan Andrews had a lacklustre performance in The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes in which virtually every member of the Australian side were outclassed by their Canadian rivals.

However, Andrews persisted and fought his way into the House for TUF 17 (team Jones versus team Sonen). Andrews was picked last but fought with brilliance and guts to make his way to the semi-finals. There he was beaten by TKO by the red hot favourite Uriah Hall.

Dylan Andrews is remembered, though, for winning arguably one of the best and closest fights in TUF history against Zak Cummings; a fight he won by majority decision after two rounds.

Andrews will meet Sam Alvey this Saturday, November 8, at UFC Fight Night 55 Rockhold vs Bisping.
