Fighters Biography

Fight preparation:

Full MMA training at Fight Fit Militia under Norman Wessels and Richard Quan.

When and why did you start training for fighting?

I started MMA in 2005 but I had Muaythai experience and also trained Shaolin Kung Fu, as well as some karate and judo. I started MMA after an experience in high school; I was messing around with a few friends, testing my fighting skills and got armbarred. I was so fascinated that a relatively weak guy could submit me.

What ranks and titles have you held:

Amateur MMA record of 4-1 as well as collecting amateur titles in grappling: SASCA grappling champion in my weight class in November 2010, and undefeated in amateur Muaythai, 6 wins.

What do you do when not training or fighting?

Spend time with my wife, the love of my life. Or I watch Muaythai or MMA fights, or martial arts movies.

Added Detail

  • First EFC featherweight champion
  • The youngest EFC Champion
  • Longest running EFC Champion
  • Longest running EFC winning streak
  • A record 10 title defences
