Fighter's Biography

  • Background Disciplines:

    Kickboxing

    Fight preparation?

    I train three times a day in Muaythai, power training/crossfit and Jits.

    When and why did you start MMA?

    Unfortunately in SA K1 isn’t going anywhere. If you want to be someone and be successful in a combat sport, it has to be in MMA, the world’s fastest growing sport.

    What ranks and titles have you held?

    3x SA K1 champion. Super-Am K1 middleweight and light heavyweight champion. XKT K1 and high kick champion.

  • What do you consider your strengths to be?

    Striking, especially kicks.

    What do you enjoy about MMA?

    The stand-up striking. Unlike some people, who see combat sports as brawling, I appreciate the science behind striking. I’m just a brutal scientist.

    What do you do when not competing or training?

    Man, just chilling and spending time with my lady.

    MMA highlights:

    I’ve had three amateur fights - The first I won on points. The second I won by submission in 16 seconds; the guy tried to rugby tackle me and went straight into a guillotine. The third was against Garreth ‘Soldierboy’ McLellan and he beat me by guillotine.
