Fighter's Biography

  • What do you do for fight preparation?

    A lot of high cardio wrestling and road work.

    When and why did you start MMA training?

    About a year ago, as I feel there are more opportunities in MMA than in wrestling.

    How did you transition to MMA?

    I achieved a lot in wrestling; Junior and Senior Protea Colors, gold at the Africa Wrestling Champs and bronze at the senior Africa wrestling Champs while I was still a junior. MMA is a new challenge and I love the art around it.

    What ranks and titles have you held?

    Africa Wrestling Champion, SA Wrestling Champion 34 times.


  • Tell us about your most memorable fight.

    Beating Mark Hulme by TKO after he beat my brother the month before was very memorable, especially the short right that knocked him down. He is a great fighter and I do respect that but it was Payback time! I am the oldest of the twins, I need to look after my brother!

    What is your favorite Technique?

    Take Downs.

    What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

    I grew up on a farm and love the bushveld. As twins my brother and I are very close and spent a lot of time together. My Dad has coached us since we were four years old.
