Fighters Biography

When & why did you start martial arts training?

In 2004, I believe that martial arts is a way to connect with my true self.

How did you transition to MMA?

I met an instructor that smashed my traditional foundation. As a martial artist, MMA is the purest form out there. To truly grow, I found I had to look further and beyond the limitations of one style.

What ranks & titles have you held?

I have achieved a lot but right now I’m not concerned with the past. This moment is a fresh start on the biggest stage and its time to get started.

How did you get your fight name?

Before I was involved in MMA, I was a semi a professional eSports player. Reaver was my gaming handle and its something I carry with me.

Favoured technique?

Rear Naked Choke. It is a superior position, undisputable submission and nothing like feeling your opponent slip into the afterlife.

Who is your hero and why?

I have multiple influences. At this moment, I’ve been obsessed with the work of Joseph Campbell. Its laid the foundation for a huge transformation in my life.

What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?

I am a huge fan and former eSports competitor that played at an international level.

What does it mean for you to fight in the EFC?

Right now, for me it means absolutely everything.
