Mikey’s brother Thomas Pembroke shared a heartfelt tribute following his big achievement 

‘He has spent the last 20 weeks getting up at 4am to train and get himself ready to be locked in a cage with another man and put everything on the line. The dedication, courage and humility you showed was awe inspiring.’

‘To get the win and perform so brilliantly was a final knot in your bow and I couldn’t be prouder,’ he added.

Last year Mikey took a break from drinking for several weeks, which did wonders for his physique.

‘Big few weeks on the [Beer emojis]… back at it now on the health train,’ he wrote in an Instagram post at the time.

Fans were quick to comment on his impressive physique, with one writing: ‘Looking good mate…please send me your motivation!’ 

‘You look glorious!’ a second added.

Months later, Mikey celebrated his decision to completely cut out alcohol from his life.

‘Life is about showing up and having a f**king go!! 10 weeks no drinks complete!’ he captioned a post on his Instagram at the time.

He continued: ‘Did 75 days which started on December 20 and pushed through the holiday period up until last week!’

Mikey told Daily Mail Australia his 10-week ‘hard challenge’ was to start the new year off on the right foot.

The Aged Care Operations Manager said it was done off the back of work being ‘full on’ and what was happening with his family in Sydney during the COVID-19 pandemic.

‘Half my family was in lock down on the beaches so I thought I would just go with a hard challenge and do 10 weeks sober,’ he said. 

‘Last year was so full on – MAFS, COVID, aged care, family’s business – and I struggled to find balance so wanted to start 2021 on the right way!’
