Fighter's Biography

  • Background Disciplines

    Submission Wrestling

    Fight preparation?

    As with all my fights I am taking a multi-faceted approach, working mainly on my fitness, conditioning and finishing skills.

    When & why did you start martial arts training?

    I began doing grappling with Mark Robinson in 2004 to help me with rugby. I then moved to trainer Brad Bloch and I also started boxing at Colin Nathan’s Hot Box Gym. Brad at the time was organising shows and training some guys to fight so I asked if I could be on the next show. From there I never looked back.

    What ranks and titles have you held?

    Won an 8 man tournament in 2009
    2 time EFC Welterweight Champion


  • Favourite technique:

    If I had to pick one I would say the guillotine, as I enjoy situations, setups and counters for it. But it's just one part of a much bigger game.

    Tell us about your most memorable fight?

    The two fights against Nolan Swanepoel and Henry Fadipe where I became the EFC Welterweight champion.

    What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

    I am currently studying Physiotherapy, I will be in final year next year :) and I have recently gotten into yoga which has really helped me in so many ways holistically

    What does it mean to you to fight in EFC?

    It is a great opportunity for me to display my creative capabilities on a global stage for all to see :)

    What was your job before you started fighting?

    I am currently studying a BHSc (Bachelor of Health Sciences) part time through Wits Medical School.
