“The recent victory by Nigeria’s MMA star Israel Adesanya in the US is a source of inspiration for me going into the fight with my opponent at OFU Fight Night 2.

“The talent pool in Nigeria is huge and we need more competitions to grow the sport so that future stars can be unearthed.”

In the lightweight category Geoffrey John aka Skullcobra will face off against Chukwuemerie Okoli just as Opara Goodluck collides with Philemon Bitrus Jeb.
