Fighters Biography

Background disciplines?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling and Boxing

When & why did you start martial arts training?

I was always pretty competitive and started with Judo initially then stepped up to MMA. I was looking for the biggest test of what I trained at the time and MMA made sense.

What ranks & titles have you held?

Black Belt in BJJ
Brown Belt in Judo
Fightclub LH title
African Pride Fighting Welterweight title.

Favoured technique?

Flying knee

What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

When I’m not training I live to be on the beach with my family. We spend days inside and it’s great to get some sun on the weekends

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

It’s an amazing platform for me to finally realise my potential and hopefully get closer to reaching my ceiling in MMA. The EFC has become one of the world’s outstanding shows and it’s a privilege to be involved.
