Mettle Pro Athlete – Brendon Katz
Brendon is one of the few South African athletes to have competed on the world Mixed Martial Arts stage, having fought in the UCMMA in the United Kingdom. He first made his mark in the early days of the Extreme Fighting Championships Africa, with unforgettable performances including one of the bloodiest fights on record against long time lightweight champion Costa Ioannou. After a lengthy absence from the EFC, Brendon made a much anticipated and talked about return at EFC 24 to convincingly defeat rising star Gareth Buirski in the featherweight division.
Brendon trains and teaches out of his academy KatzMMA and Durant’s Gym in Norwood. But what truly sets him apart is his ability to never get rattled, no matter what the situation, Brendon is always a rock in a storm. He is an all-round complete athlete who knows proving yourself isn’t in what you say, it’s in what you do.
