Fighter's Biography

  • Background disciplines?

    Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

    Fight Preperation?

    Constantly looking to improve as an all-round martial artist. Whether the fight stays standing or goes down, I am always well prepared.

    When & why did you start martial arts training?

    End of 2011. I had previously trained wrestling at school but was more into rugby. I got bullied and decided to join MMA.

    How and why did you transition to MMA?

    I was being bullied at school and joined Shaughn Vos who has been my coach to-date. I found I had a knack for fighting and have trained full time ever since.

  • What ranks & titles have you held?

    National Champion in Jiu Jitsu, and have provincial colours for wrestling. I was CFL lightweight champion.

    Favoured technique?

    I'm a showy guy and I must say anything goes.

    Who is your hero, and why?

    Wanderlei Silva, because I look like him and we both have no fear.

    What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

    I played junior Craven week rugby. I have also been blessed to train full time, twice a day when I was an amateur.
