Born in a family operating a karate dojo, both parents being black belts, Oliver was raised as a Martial Artist since day 1.
He started training just a few years old and eventually got to competing, which earned him a spot in the Swedish National Team for juniors. During the active years in karate he visited Japan, Okinawa, several times for training and to expand his knowledge in the art of karate.
As a teenager he also started training and fighting in kickboxing/K-1, and in 2010 as he had graduated high school he spent 8 weeks training in Thailand where he made his professional debut in Muay Thai – winning by head kick knock out at Bangla Stadium.
As MMA grew world wide, he discovered the art of grappling and started developing his ground game; winning many bouts in the Swedish Grappling League and later entering the amateur MMA scene where he became Swedish Welterweight Champion in 2011 & 2012.
The Martial Art-journey kept expanding by competitions in Sanda (Chinese kickboxing); in which he also won the Swedish title twice and got to represent Sweden in the World- and European Championships, earning a bronze medal for his efforts.
The professional MMA career started in 2013 after racking up an amateur record of 14-1. His training has brought him all over the world from top MMA-gyms like Alliance, ATT and Tristar to Thailand, Brazil, New York and Europe. The motto has always been “no rush”.

”My style in three words: Creative, Dynamic & Entertaining. I value sportsmanship, character and flawless technique. To me fighting is an art, where I am the artist and my techniques are my tools. I want to create exciting art (fights) to inspire more people taking up Martial Arts and spread its traditional values of humility and respect.”
