Fighter's Biography

  • Background Disciplines

    Wrestling and Jiu jitsu

    What do you do for fight preparation?

    I do a lot of conditioning and work on my weak points.

    How did you get your fight name?

    I've had it since I started wrestling. I could never stop smiling.

    When and why did you start MMA?

    I just wanted to show people my wrestling. Wrestling didn't not put us on TV. No one could see how good we are.

    What ranks and titles have you held?

    I have the AFL title and am 10 time Wrestling Nationals Champ.

    Tell us about your most memorable fight.

    Fighting with Chad from Durban. Knocking him out was the best.



  • What is your favourite technique?

    I don't really have one. My wrestling coach showed me so much it's really hard to tell.

    Who are your heroes?

    The Hulk
