Fighters Biography

Fight preparation?

Two hours of cardio and conditioning in the morning. Boxing, sparring pads, bags (changes daily) in the afternoon and jiu-jitsu grappling, wrestling and clinch work in the evenings.

When and why did you start training for fighting?

I’d been playing hockey since high school but I wasn’t much of a team player and I kept losing my temper. In 2000 I got banned after I hit an opponent with my hockey stick. On the way home I drove past a Muaythai studio and thought it would be a good idea to check it out, at least there I could hit people and not get in trouble. Later that same year I was exposed to MMA and it was a natural progression. I still compete in Muaythai, but only outside SA.
