Biography

FIGHTING STYLE: Wrestler

ATHLETIC BACKGROUND: Wrestling

WHAT WOULD BECOMING A UFC FIGHTER MEAN TO YOU: To become a UFC athlete will be the biggest achievement I've ever accomplished and it will mean more than anything in the world to me to compete at the highest level of MMA. Over the past years I have put in all the hard work and stayed focused on the main goal, to become a UFC fighter. For me to be the only South African fighter in the UFC will be the greatest feeling, and I'm really looking to put my country back on track after some of my countrymen have failed.

 

MINI-BIO: I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1996 and I began fighting in 2014 because I wanted to improve my wrestling to become an Olympic wrestler. The sport has grown on me so much that I've stopped wrestling to become a full-time mixed martial artist. I've won the Fightstars Championship amateur title as well as the Extreme Fighting Championship (EFC Worldwide) flyweight professional title. I have always looked up to Urijah Faber because of the great athlete he was, not just in the Octagon but also outside the cage. He is a great person and a role model. My favorite fighters are Cody Garbrandt, Demetrious Johnson and Khabib Nurmagomedov. I'm looking to make it to the very top in the UFC and to become a UFC champion because I know I have the right mindset and I'm surrounded by the right people. I enjoy challenging myself on a daily basis and to become a world champion will give me many hurdles I need to conquer.
