Drazan was born in Vinkovci, Croatia in the mid 1970's. From a young age he began training in kickboxing and Muay Thai as his father owned the local gym and had dreams of his son becoming a world champion some day as he never had the chance. Drazan fell in love with combat sports before he had even reached his teen years and inevitably he decided to pursue mixed martial arts as a career. He fought professionally in many organisations across the world from the United States to Japan and everywhere in-between. He had become renowned as a fighter who would stop at nothing to absolutely brutalise his opponent until the referee was forced to literally drag him off, which was popular among some fans but of course very frowned upon also. This happened on several occasions but the final time was in late 2014 whilst defending his world title he ended up killing his opponent inside the cage, resulting in a lifetime suspension from the sport and an immediate release from the organisation.
After this upset Drazan was forced into several mental health examinations which yielded results some may not have been surprised by. He decided to abandon the sport entirely and viewed the entire thing as unfair, blaming the athletic commission for not stopping him sooner and pretty much everyone but himself. He became an outcast and decided to move to the city of Novigrad, the city in which his mother was born. The people of Chernarus didn't really follow the sport of MMA and he believed he would be allowed to live out the rest of his days in peace from the heckling journalists and constant examinations.
The isolation led to a downward spiral, resulting in even further detriment to his mental health as well as money troubles due to having no life skills outside of combat sports. He dreamed of chaos and wished to one day be as free as he felt in the cage. That freedom of anarchy is precisely what came to him.
