Fighters Biography

Background disciplines?
Kickboxing

Fight preparation?
I train five to seven hours a day, six days a week and follow a strict diet to ensure that I am fit and ready for the fight.

When & why did you start martial arts training?
I started training martial arts at the age of 19. I was in and out of court for fighting on the street so decided to take up MMA to stay out of trouble and do what I do best. From there it was a natural progression for me in learning the different disciplines.

What ranks & titles have you held?
I hold 4 Amateur Titles:

MFC Middleweight Champion
MFC Welterweight Champion
Fightstars Welterweight Champion
Fightstars Middleweight Champion

I also fought representing South Africa in New Zealand.

Favoured technique?
To hit first because it always works 😉

How did you get your fight name?
My fighting name is “Skinner”. My friends nicknamed me this after a ruthless older guy from the Bluff who was notorious for destroying everything in his path. My nickname then became my fight name.

Tell us about your most memorable fight?
This has to be my international fight in New Zealand against Arthur Lasike. It was my first trip overseas. I didn’t really have a corner so had to do it all on my own. They only told me when I got there that it was going to be a pro fight. It was really tough mentally but I gave my best performance and I won the fight with a choke in 1 minute and 26 seconds.

Who is your hero?
My hero would definitely be my mom as she taught me how to fight every battle thrown my way.

What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?
I enjoy playing indoor soccer, surfing and having a good time

What does it mean to you to fight in EFC?
To fight in the EFC means that I can hit people without going to court…but on a serious note it’s a platform for me to channel my talent and showcase my skill with other talented fighters
