Fighters Biography

What do you do for fight preparation?

I train from Monday to Saturday. Mainly I like to work on my stand up as Muay Thai is my background. I work my wrestling on Mondays and Wednesday. For fights I get special help from Fight Fit Militia.

When and why did you start martial arts training?

I started Karate when I was 14, following my big brothers footsteps. Then I watched UFC 1, saw Royce Gracie and thought to myself that I want to be like him; small but beating big people! As time passed by I did some traditional jiu-jitsu. At school myself and Demarte Pena created our own MMA tournament. He helped me with the Muay Thai until I got to varsity when I started training at the Undisputed Fight Club.

What ranks and titles have you held?

I am the Mpumalanga lightweight champion.

Added Detail

  • Hails from Angola, school friend of Demarte Pena
  • Has been competing as an MMA pro since 2013
  • Was a successful as an Amateur
  • Majority of his bouts have ended in Round 1
