Fighter's Biography

  • Background disciplines?

    Kickboxing

    Fight preparation?

    I don't change my training when preparing for a fight. I always train myself to the bone to ensure my body is in top physical condition. I'm always on the prowl for a fight so being in shape at my age is easy to maintain. Hard training full time is the only approach I find effective.

    When & why did you start martial arts training?

    I have been involved and competing in martial arts since I was 5 years old starting with Judo and then wrestling. I've always loved fighting, of any sort, at the age of 14 I started to train and compete in K-1. The aim has ever since been the combination of stand-up and ground game, trying to dominate these styles individually while pursuing the dream of entering Professional MMA. Approaching both styles helped me a lot in understanding the art and the balance of what’s needed for the cage.

    What ranks & titles have you held?

    WAKO K-1 World Champion


  • Who is your hero, and why?

    I have a lot of heroes in and out of the fight game my fighting hero. I would have to say Connor McGregor. I love his confidence and the way he backs himself no matter what he breaks his opponents mentally and wins the fight even before they enter the cage. In the cage he goes out to beat his opponents not simply to win and in that way he guarantees and exiting flight every time. That is also my mentality going into any fight.

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

    Fighting in the EFC really means a lot to me they made MMA what it is today in Africa and i am honoured to be an EFC athlete an also the quality of fighters that the EFC is producing is great and i am sure that i will be in the UFC in the near future and the EFC is in a big way responsible for that as well as the other athletes making it into the UFC

    What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

    I am a student at TUKS University. I spend most of my time either training or coaching that is what I love to do on my days off. I mostly go to the farm where I love hunting, water sports and any extreme sports out there.
