Fighters Biography

Fight preparation?

Coming from a boxing background means I know what discipline is and that’s what training is for me, it’s a way of life. I know my stand up is tops but I have been working on my ground, learning how to move and get out of situations. I do a lot of roadwork and caveman workouts.

When and why did you start MMA?

There was a boxing gym across the road from my house and I stumbled in there when I was 5.

What ranks and titles have you held?

I’ve won many pro boxing titles, SA Champion Featherweight, SA Transvaal Champion.

Added Detail

  • Turned pro in 2009
  • Fought with EFC since inception
  • Won fight of the night twice and KO of the night once
