How often do you train and what does it consists of?
I train as often as I can due to the fact that I work shifts. My training consists of kickboxing, MMA specific drills, ground work and cardio.
When and why did you start MMA?
I started MMA in 2006. I was invited to an MMA tournament and it was during the tournament that I realized that this was where I needed to be.
- All my wins have been highlights, although I’ve learned from the losses the most.
- My amateur record boasts 7 wins and 2 losses.
- My pro record achievements thus far include: defeating Paul Vosloo, Boyd Allen and Cee Ngaboni, while suffering a loss to Johan van Staden by points.
- My most current highlight was being invited to fight at EFC AFRICA that will take place shortly.
What do u enjoy best about MMA?
I get to hit people in the face and get paid (legally) to do it lol jokes aside…!!!
I appreciate the physical and mental demands we put ourselves through to be able to compete as mixed martial artists. The training programs are designed to separate us from just your average “cage fighter” it also present huge challenges that I find hard to resist.
Pushing ones body to the limit in strength and endurance as well as fight-specific drills becomes the highlight of our day, and a way of life.
What do u consider your strengths to be?
People think that because I have a kickboxing background I would list that as a strength, but in actual fact my stature and physique allows me to be versatile during stand up as well as ground fighting techniques. I am able to be quite tight and compact on the ground, making it difficult to control me like you would a normal “stand up” fighter.
