Another Nigerian, Hakeem Dawodu Beats Russian Opponent (Photos)

Freshreporters news reports that Nigerian-Canadian mixed martial art fighter Hakeem Dawodu earned his fifth straight win on Sunday after kicking out his Russian opponent Zubaira Tukhugov at the UFC253 held at the Flash Forum on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.

It was noted that Dawodu’s victory came into reality before the famous Israel Adesanya knocked out his opponent in the second round.

Dawodu won the match after three rounds, saying: “I thought it was going to be a good fight but as everybody can see, he was running,” he shouted after the win. “I promise the next fight, give me somebody that ain’t gonna run.”

Dawodu said while flying the Nigerian flag after his victory: “They only allowed me to bring one flag, so I’m really sorry for not bringing the Jamaican and Canadian flags but you know what I represent.”

The 29-year-old said this was one of the fights he pulled off for “something bigger than myself – all my black people, all my African people, everybody that’s getting oppressed”.

With his victory, Dawodu moves to 5-1 overall in the UFC while making a steady climb towards the featherweight top 15 rankings.

The Minster of Youth and Sports Development Sunday Dare while celebrating Dawodu on Twitter dropped this:

“I also congratulate and celebrate Hakeem Dawodu. Another Nigerian who won his fight this morning before Isreal.”
