Fighter's Biography

  • Background Disciplines:


    When and why did you start training martial arts?

    At the age of nine and I started training martial arts because I had a passion and a love for martial arts fighting.

    When & why did you start martial arts training?

    From childhood I did karate, Judo and some kickboxing. At 18 I started training MMA and quickly putting all the fighting style I had learnt together.

    How did you get your fight name?

    I got my fighting name because I'm a quiet person but, when it comes to fighting I become dangerous just like a gun being wielded, when you pull the trigger of a gun things start to happen.

    Who are your heroes?

    My father, I am who I am today is because of him!

  • Favoured technique?

    My favourite technique is a rear-naked choke because it is the best pill to give to your opponent so he can go to sleep.

    What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

    I play drums and I am a coach at RAW Combination FTC Gym.

    What does it mean for you to fight in EFC?

    I am grateful and I feel as though it is an opportunity for me to show my talent and further myself in my fighting skills.
