Douwes has a background in Kickboxing / Muay Thai. He began training under Hans Nijman, Dick Vrij and Gilbert Ballentine at 'Team Spirit Beverwijk', and would later on branch out to the notorious 'Mike's Gym' under the famed Mike Passenier.
He has taken on some of the greatest heavyweight strikers of a generation, earning victories over Rico Verhoeven, Jamal Ben Saddik, the brothers Dževad Poturak and Dženan Poturak, Hesdy Gerges, Mighty Mo Siliga, James McSweeney, Alain Nglaini, Jahfarr Wilnis, Aziz Jahjah and many others, while also being handed defeats by the likes of Pavel Zhuravlev, Cătălin Moraşanu, Daniel Ghiţă, Saulo Cavalari, Anderson "Braddock" Silva, Rodney Glunder, Guto Inocente and Konstantin Gluhov.

Although he has very limited success under full MMA rules contests, Douwes competed in the 'Ganryujima 1' hybrid event where he found great success. The tournament format and theme is of a throw-back to the classical days of martial arts and MMA where each style was pitted against the other in a battle to see which is the superior individual combat style. Representing Kickboxing, he was joined by 8 rivals who represented styles including Judo ( Kano Jiu-Jitsu), Karate, Capoeira, Sumo, Russian-Sambo, Shui Jiao and Senegalese-Folkstyle Wrestling.
