Tyson Pedro was born and raised in Sydney, Australia, and with his father’s influence he grew up surrounded by Martial Arts.
Tyson found his love of fighting from the age of 8 competing in Kenpo Karate & Weapon tournaments, but after dominating the competition he found a new challenge in boxing. During his successful and undefeated 7 fight win streak in amateur boxing, Tyson decided to build on his arsenal competing and winning at various state, national and Pan Pacific Jiu Jitsu tournaments.
In 2010, Tyson was awarded the accolade best boxer after winning his division in the NSW State Titles. He then moved on to win the 2012 Abu Dhabi Jiu Jitsu World Trials in the blue belt open weight division, qualifying for the world championships in Abu Dhabi which he was unable to attend due to prior work commitments.
Later Tyson then won his first a class amateur MMA debut and immediately turned Pro.
