Fighter's Biography

  • BACKGROUND DISCIPLINES

    Muay Thai

    FIGHT PREPERATION

    I train six days a week. Cardio and strngth, starting at five am and various skill set training in the evening for three hours.

    WHEN & WHY DID YOU START FIGHTING?

    I started Muay Thai in 2008 and later in 2010 I moved over to MMA. I went to watch the EFC 01 event and decided that I waned to fight in EFC one day. Later that year I transitioned over to MMA. 18 EFC events later the hard work has paid off!

    WHAT RANKS AND TITLES HAVE YOU HELD?

    I hold no ranks or titles but represented South Africa at the 2010 WMF world amatuer Muay Thai championships in Thailand.

  • TELL US ABOUT YOUR MOST MEMORABLE FIGHT.

    My most memorable fight was at lightweight against Barend Nienaber when we were both still amatuers. The fight showed me how I needed to start developing my entire skill set and not only rely on Muay Thai.

    FAVOURED TECHNIQUE

    Elbows and low kicks.

    WHAT OTHER INTERESTING INFORMATION CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?

    I’m employed full time as a quantity surveyor and currently studying towards a B.Com in financial management. I have played physical sport all my life; playing rugby and representing South Africa at junior level water polo. Martial arts was a natural transition for me. The dedicated lifestyle is what drives me.
