Fighter's Biography

  • Background Disciplines:

    MMA

    What do you do for fight preparation?

    All depends on who I am fighting. Basically I’m always looking to improve myself by working on all aspects of my game, six days a week.

    When and why did you start martial arts training?

    I started MMA in 2010. I used to watch these events at Sun Coast where I was watching guys like Donavin Hawkey and Martin Van Staden do their thing then a friend told me there is a club on the Bluff where I met Donavin and Wesley Hawkey. Frrom then I never looked back.

    What ranks and titles have you held?

    I was ranked number one bantam weight in KZN as I held the KZN and AFL titles.

  • What is your pro and amateur MMA record, as well as any other disciplines you’ve fought in, including KO/TKO/finishes.

    I will be making my pro debut at EFC 23 but my amateur record is 14-4 if I am not mistaken. 1 KO victory, 1 TKO victory and the rest with submissions.

    Tell us about your most memorable fight.

    My most memorable fights was when I fought for both titles and won them!

    What is your favourite technique?

    I don’t really have a favourite technique, hey. I am an all-round fighter.

    What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

    I am a laid back guy hey who loves chilling with mates at braais, jamming on PS3 and chowing down! Basically I am a simple, social guy when I’m not training.
