Fighter's Biography

  • Background disciplines

    K1 & Muay Thai

    Fight preparation?

    I grapple in the mornings then recap and do some stand-up drills and sparring in the afternoons. My workouts are shorter than they used to be, but more intense. So two sessions a day, six days a week. CIT has an excellent group of fighters which makes it much easier for me to train them and myself at the same time.

    When and why did you start training for fighting?

    Started kickboxing in high school, went pro in 2001 then moved to MMA when it became impossible to find opponents. No one wanted to take on a Team CIT fighter! Since then I’ve fallen in love with MMA. The training is more interesting and versatile and you can do more with it.

    What ranks and titles have you held?

  • Won the SA kickboxing pro am title in 2001, defended it once then turned pro. Fought some of the best fighters from Quentin Chong and Larry Vorster’s dojos, managed to take a super middleweight Muaythai title, a super middleweight Thai boxing title and a light heavyweight 8 man knockout title. Also got to 3rd dan in Shidokan under Henk Pelser. Fight Force middleweight MMA champion in 2011.
