Fighting back with Ronald Dlamini

We recently had a remarkable story of hope and the true meaning of never giving up or backing down, we caught with former MMA champion Ronald “Black Mamba” Dlamini. Ronald’s story is a true inspiration for all who have had setbacks in their lives.

The visually impaired Ronald has always been a champion, whether in or out of the ring, he was born born in KwaZulu-Natal, it was in high school that his love for boxing developed into MMA and dreams of being the first black man to become champion, and in 2009 he achieved that, to become the first black Mixed Martial Arts champion.

He lost his sight at the age of 36 in 2012 due to meningitis while in New Zealand for a fight. The former champ didn’t throw in the towel but instead he has now kept up training with his coach and even trains others to fight, he truly has become a motivational champion to all.

This is a true meaning of never loosing hope when life knocks you down, you always have to keep on trying to get up and dust yourself off. Ronald has now written a book ‘Life after Blind’ to inspire others.
