Fighter's Biography

  • Background Disciplines

    Muay Thai

    What do you do for fight preparation?

    I train from Monday to Saturday. Mainly I like to work on my stand up as Muay Thai is my background. I work my wrestling on Mondays and Wednesday. For fights I get special help from Fight Fit Militia.

    When and why did you start martial arts training?

    I started Karate when I was 14, following my big brothers footsteps. Then I watched UFC 1, saw Royce Gracie and thought to myself that I want to be like him; small but beating big people! As time passed by I did some traditional jiu-jitsu. At school myself and Demarte Pena created our own MMA tournament. He helped me with the Muay Thai until I got to varsity when I started training at the Undisputed Fight Club.

    What ranks and titles have you held?

    I am the Mpumalanga lightweight champion.


  • Tell us about your most memorable fight.

    My last amateur fight was for the Mpumalanga lightweight title against Lourens Botes. The fight was on short notice but I was ready. I got caught in an omaplata in the 4th round but survived. I finally won by RNC in the last round. It was a tough, tough fight.

    What is your favourite technique?

    Leg kicks, even though I have others that also work.

    What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

    I'm currently finishing my Bis Information Science degree at Tuks. Previously I was studying Bis multimedia but changed to have more time to train. I'm basically a computer guy. I hang out with friends when I'm free, love dogs and I am great at ice skating.
