Fighter's Biography

  • Fight preparation?

    I train BJJ and all round MMA with Rodney King and Nuno De Gouveia at Crazy Monkey Defense. It involves a lot of sparring, pad work, rolling and mental game training. I also train at Fight Fit Militia with Richard Quan and the FFM fight team. I hit pads, spar, roll, do roadwork, crossfit and a load of other stuff.

    When and why did you start training for fighting?

    I started in 2004 and jumped head first into MMA. I started for myself and instantly loved it!

    What ranks and titles have you held?

    GI and No-GI submission champion. Fought some of the best.

    Favourite technique:

    Ground and pound.

    What was your job before you started fighting?

    Barman and bar manager.

    You've become one of EFC AFRICA's most popular fighters in a very short time, how do you feel about all the attention?

    I really don't like being in the spotlight and was really uncomfortable with it but slowly I'm getting comfortable with it and I'm sure I'm a lot more approachable because of that.

    What do you do when you're not training or fighting?

    I have a few hobbies but when I'm not training or fighting I'm just sleeping, or relaxing with my girlfriend and friends. The bit of extra fun I get is riding my bikes on the weekends.
