Fighters Biography

Background disciplines?

MMA

Fight preparation?

For fight prepping we have a month and a half camp where we do K-1, Mauythai and loads of MMA conditioning.

When & why did you start martial arts training?

I started MMA training in 2010 with no experience of any kind, I was drinking with some friends and always wanted to fight, I heard about Rico and never looked back.

What ranks & titles have you held?

EFC Light Heavyweight Champion

Favoured technique?

I guess my favourite technique is MMA.

Who is your hero?

I’d have to say Mike Tyson and his psychology for fights. In my opinion he was one of the most motivated fighters I ever seen.

What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

I love training and being around my friends “want ons gaan nou braai” and playing… XBOX as many times as I can. My favourite games would be COD MW3, FIFA 16 and I must still get 13 and UFC 3.

  • Former EFC Light Heavyweight Champion
  • Former Rugby Player
