Rene Rooze (born 26 January 1969) is a Dutch former kickboxer and mixed martial artist.

Biography and career[edit]

As a member of Team Aerts, he was an active fighter competing in mainly European events and accumulating (as of 2004) a kickboxing record of 32-7-1 with 4 KOs. Also was a holder of the European super heavyweight kickboxing title (MTBN) [1]

After Peter Aerts split with his previous kickboxing club Chakuriki and the creation of his own Team Aerts, Rene Rooze took up the position of his cornerman.[2] Since his retirement he has gone on to be a successful Muay Thai instructor and conditioning coach.

Rooze also competed in a number of mixed martial arts bouts and held a record of 5 wins and 4 losses. Notably, he fought the Japanese sumo wrestler Tadao Yasuda twice and knocked him out on both occasions. He lost his last MMA bout at Bushido Europe: Rotterdam Rumble against Alexander Emelianenko on October 9, 2005.[3] He is also famous for his way of fighting the limits of the rules[clarification needed] and for any fouls and misconduct.
