Fighters Biography

Fight preparation?

I have a swimming session at the gym daily from Monday to Thursday. Monday and Wednesday nights it’s 200km up and down from Secunda to Rio Grappling in Springs for MMA and Jiu-Jitsu training. Tuesday it’s spinning and boxing and Thursday it’s spinning and Muay Thai. Fridays are strength and conditioning with my personal trainer and MMA fighter Jan-Hendrick Booysen. Saturdays varies from open mat to private classes. Sundays I have a well-deserved rest.

When & why did you start martial arts training?

I started Judo and Wrestling with my dad at a young age but never on a competitive level. I started kickboxing in 2009 to try and stay out of trouble (it helped a lot). My MMA career developed from there.

How did you transition to MMA?

In 2010 I fought at my first amateur MMA event. I loved competing and fighting in front of people!

What ranks and titles have you held?

I came 2nd at the Fila National grappling championship in 2012 in the 66kg no gi division. I finished 1st in the Fila Gauteng provincial grappling championship in 2013 in the under 66kg no gi division and 3rd in the under 70kg division.

Favoured technique?

Whatever gets the job done.

Who is you hero?

Jesus Christ the Lord of Lords and King of Kings.

What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

I am a QA/QC for Sasol, training is my hobby and fun, free time goes to family and my beautiful daughter Caylee.

What does it mean for you to fight in EFC?

Fighting for the EFC is amazing, but until I got that belt I’m not done yet!!!!
