    I am a doctor by qualification and a father.

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

    This is a dream come true and the only way that I can reach out and change people’s lives through martial arts. It is a great honour indeed to be part of Africa’s toughest athletes. The doctor has arrived to consult in the cage!
