The Beginning of the Path

The renowned athlete dubbed “The Last Stylebender” was born in Nigeria in 1989. Apart from a brief stint in Taekwondo, sports had no place in his life during his childhood and adolescence.

It’s hard to believe now, but the fighter experienced bullying in high school when the family had already moved to New Zealand. Things changed drastically in college.

For now, the Last Stylebender has had a total of 27 matches in his professional MMA career, 24 of which ended in victory. He has received numerous awards and honors from reputable sports organizations and media.
