Fighter's Biography

  • What do you do for fight preparation?

    Full MMA training at Combat Coaching under Morne Swanepoel.

    How did you begin MMA?

    I started MMA in 2009 with no experience in the martial arts. I tried all other forms but MMA is the only one that has satisfied me on the inside.

    What ranks and titles have you held?

    The Amateur Fight League and Megladon Fight Club lightweight titles.

    Tell us about your most memorable fight.

    Those would have to be my title fights. I came in as the underdog on both and took them.


  • What is your favourite technique?

    Any form of leg lock, but I am an all-round fighter.

    What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

    I work full time as an IT Engineer. I enjoy my rest periods when I get them. I’m laid back.
