Fighter's Biography

  • Fight preparation?

    I believe steel sharpens steel and I have the unbelievable Team Berserker behind me, from pad holders to strength and conditioning coaches as well as sparring partners, all encompassed in what I call Militia Combat Systems developed and executed by Richard Quan.

    When and why did you start training for fighting?

    As a means to an end, being a broke student in London is never a recipe for anything but desperation, but in that I found a sport that I instantly found was a natural progression for me.

    What ranks and titles have you held?

    I broke my arm in my first fight. It's not an accomplishment but taught me the true nature of the beast I was about to tackle in the form of MMA. I became EFC AFRICA’s first heavyweight champion at EFC 05. It was one of the greatest moments of my life. I am not the greatest athlete, boxer or ju-jitsu guy, I work hard at my passion and I can dig very very deep. I realised that it was not about me but all the people who believed in me and pushed me to be my best.

  • Favourite technique:

    I'm a big boy but my speed on the ground is something else, plus the clinch.

    Do you have any heroes?

    My grandmother and mother.

    Other interesting info:

    Used to be an executive chef for Southern Sun, hence the nickname.
