Fighters Biography

Fight preparation?

Twice a day. Morning is a strength session. Monday and Wednesday are cardio days, Thursday is boxing, Tuesday and Saturday are grappling days.

When and why did you start MMA?

Roughly 2008. I came from a boxing family and I watched my brothers start out in boxing and move into MMA. Seeing the sport grow was great and I decided I wanted to try it.

What ranks and titles have you held?

Boxing – I took an SA title as a junior.

What do you enjoy about MMA?

The adrenaline, the hype and the crowd.

What do you consider your strengths to be?

Stand-up skills and my natural physical strength.

What do you do when not competing or training?

I work as an electrician. When I’m not preparing for a fight I just like to relax.

Added Detail

  • 22 MMA fights in total
  • All 10 of his finishes have been in the 1st round
  • All losses have come by submission
  • Majority of his bouts have ended in round 1
