Fighters Biography

What do you do for fight preparation?

Generally a fight camp consists of 6 days a week of training. Roughly 4 hours a day split over two sessions, mornings and evenings. I work on my trademark striking all year round and have over the last year put countless hours into my ground game ensuring I am a complete, all round, dangerous fighter.

How did you get your fight name?

Well you see, those who know me outside of the Hexagon will know I’m generally a very controlled and calculated person. However once that Hexagon door slams, something inside me switches on and all the built up Rage culminates in that one moment. It only took a few fights and the label stuck. . .

When and why did you start martial arts training?

I started as a six year old boy with Karate, continued until I was a multiple SA champion with one world title under the belt. I moved on to Kickboxing and yet again sought to be the absolute best. Once I had won the world championships in my Matric year I took a bit of time off for studying, etc., before stumbling onto MMA. I liked what I saw and was hooked immediately. Fighting is in my bones. It’s what I do and I’m only just starting a new chapter of my journey.
