Fighter's Biography

  • Background disciplines?


    When & why did you start martial arts training?

    I always had a love for fighting. Throughout my life I’ve learnt to defend myself and others. It started by growing up with two older brothers who made sure I knew how to defend myself. There was no formula training when I was younger, but only a passion. I eventually started pursuing my MMA dream in 2012.

    Transition to MMA?

    I started out in MMA.

    What achievements and ranks have you held?

    FightStar featherweight champ

    What is your favourite technique?

    Anything that can get me the KO victory.

    Who is your hero?

  • My dad is my Hero. No matter what, he always ensured we had whatever we needed and worked hard to provide for me and my brothers.

    What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself

    I obtained a BSc degree from The University of Pretoria. I enjoy cycling and playing with my dogs and love spending time with family and friends. My biggest dream outside of fighting is to be a man of God and a man my family can be proud of.

    What does it mean for you to fight in the EFC?

    Fighting for EFC means the world to me. I have dreamed of this from the first time I saw my first MMA fight. I remember when I was in grade 11 I told my friends that I am going to become an EFC fighter and to see it come true, is absolutely wonderful.
