Fighter's Biography



    Fight preparation?

    I train 5 times per week, full ground and stand-up training.

    When and why did you start MMA?

    I started MMA around 2009, three years after I came to SA from Georgia. I wanted to box professionally in South Africa but I was disappointed with the standard. I walked into an MMA gym, Team CIT in Pretoria, and enjoyed MMA.

    What ranks and titles have you held?

    I was 5x Georgian boxing champion. I had 92 fights and only lost 2 when I was 7 years old.

  • What do you enjoy about MMA?

    Everything. I’m not a ground fighter, but since I’ve been training with Attila Barna I’ve grown to enjoy grappling. At first I hated being taken down, but now I’m more interested in the entire sport. I also enjoy training with top fighters like Leon Mynhardt, who has taught me a lot about stand-up, and Michiel Opperman and Adam Speechly, who have taught me a lot on the ground. Team CIT has a great bunch of guys to spar with.
