Fighter's Biography

  • Background disciplines?

    Jiu-Jitsu and Kickboxing

    When & why did you start martial arts training?

    I started kickboxing and at age 12 and moved to MMA at age 18.

    How and why did you transition to MMA?

    I was looking for a greater challenge than kickboxing so I started MMA which is the ultimate challenge in martial arts.

  • How did you get your fight name?

    I did a lot of kicks in my training and my first day at my current club I kicked Tumisang Madiba in the nose which was not intentional and in one of my amateur fights I knocked Pietie Coxen with a kick and after that people at my gym started calling me Mr. Kick.

    Favoured technique?

    I don’t have a specific technique I use any technique and style that works in the moment.

    Who is your hero, and why?

    My mom, because she inspires me and taught me a lot of lessons in my life and about life. She also supports me 100% in my fighting career.

    What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

    I like to teach children better values in life and I’m doing so by going to schools and in my own club and speaking to them. So in essence I like to make a difference in teenagers and kids lives.

    What does it mean for you to fight in EFC?

    It is an honour to fight for EFC.
