Fighters Biography

Background Disciplines

Kickboxing and MMA

Fight preparation?

I train with the best to be the best. Physically I’m one of the hardest workers I know; mentally, focus is what I’m all about just before the fight.

When and why did you start training for fighting?

Got into cage fighting a couple of years ago as a way to improve my fitness for rugby, then BANG, I’m hooked!

Favourite technique:

Name your submission hold… and high kicks.

Other interesting information?

I am very outgoing and love life, friendly and always joking around. I’ll always fight with a beard and shave it off directly after, so if you look twice because it’s gone, don’t worry it’s me.

Added Detail

  • 5 Title Fights
  • Lost his title to Jeremy Smith in the 4th round by RNC
  • 2x Fight of the Night winner
  • 9 Submission victories
