Fighters Biography

Fight preparation?

I train Monday to Friday. Monday is Muaythai, Tuesday is boxing, Thursday is boxing, Thursday is Muaythai, Friday is boxing and grappling.

When and why did you start MMA?

I started MMA around 2004/2005. I discovered MMA when I was working as a club bouncer at Fashion Society; the owner had a friend that was into MMA and said he could get me a fight. It was great and I now love the sport.

What do you enjoy about MMA?

Fighting has always been a passion of mine and the only thing that’s going to stop me is death.

What do you consider your strengths to be?

My physical strength, technique and the fact that I’m a clever fighter. I won’t go in and bang without a plan, when I fight I know exactly what I’m doing.

Added Detail

  • Pro since 2012
  • Won KO of the night in his debut fight against Paul Kietzmann
