Biography

TRAINING: As always, a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. Some old tactics, some new, but all in all, a lot of hard work.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I was born in Nigeria and moved to the United States in 1983. My parents worked very hard to ensure our education, and I attended college for four years in Business. I started fighting because I loved Martial Arts. I began training nine years ago in Muay Thai, five years ago in jiu-jitsu. Bruce Lee movies interested me and I had the dream of being a real Martial Arts hero some day.

What ranks and titles have you held?
Art Of War Champion, Kansas Muay Thai Champion, TKO Champion.

Do you have any heroes? My father

What is your favorite technique?
Leg kick

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It has been a long journey and a long time waiting, but definitely a dream come true for me. It feels great to be welcomed into a huge organization that holds a lot of respect for MMA fighters and represents what we do and who we are, not just here in the United States, but all over the world.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn?
No degree

What was your job before you started fighting? Muay Thai Trainer, Earth Link
