When you meet Alex Gorgees, it is hard to believe that as a 14-year-old he weighed a staggering 110kg.
As a youngster Gorgees struggled with his weight. Some of the kids at school would make a point of labelling Alex as a “fat kid”. Keen to do something about it, Alex joined a local soccer team to get some exercise.
“I started out playing soccer but I got kicked out of the team for fighting,” said Gorgees.
“I realised soccer wasn’t for me and that’s where I got introduced to combat sports.”
Gorgees took to it brilliantly, training ferociously whilst making a number of sacrifices traveling around the world to perfect his craft.
Australian Top Team
In recent times, Alex Gorgees has taken his game to another level with the help of Ashkan and Suman Moktharian at Australian Top Team.
The passion these guys have for MMA is infectious and it has clearly had an impact on Gorgees.
