Fighter's Biography

  • Background Disciplines:

    MMA

    What do you do for fight preparation?

    Well, I believe you need to train fighting to fight. Lots of fitness, lots of sparring, lots of pads and lots of rolling. I don't believe in cross fit, but then again, I'm a fatty.

    When and why did you start martial arts training?

    My friends and trainers Ryan de Vasconsellos and Wade Henderson both were fighting. In 2009 they said I must join them for a couple of training sessions. I loved it, and after watching EFC 01 I knew that's what I wanted to do.

    How did you transition to MMA?

    I'm a brawler, been bouncing since I was 16, but I soon discovered that even though in the street that's what you need in the Hexagon you need a lot more. I started looking into all the disciplines that one uses in MMA. I liked a couple and stuck with them.


  • What ranks and titles have you held?

    Ha, ha, ha. Does being a bad ass in Boksburg count?

    Tell us about your most memorable fight.

    Must be my fight with Lance Ceronio at EFC 21. It was war. We both were bloody and bruised after. The more I hit him the more he hit me. We both didn't give up. Big respect for Lance for the fight. I loved every second of it and to me that's how fighting is supposed to be. Leave everything in the cage.

    What is your favourite technique?

    Anything that works!
