Tristan “Boondock” Connelly is a Professional Mixed Martial Artist from Victoria. His first professional MMA fight was in 2010 and he continues to climb the ranks of the world’s lightweight division. Tristan shocked the world on his UFC debut on September 14, 2019 when he stepped up a weight-class on 5 days’ notice to fight Michel Pereira, winning by unanimous decision in front of his hometown crowd at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC. Tristan will share his journey from Vancouver Island to the highest stage in Mixed Martial Arts and how coaching and inspiring others became an important part of this.
