Abdul Razak Alhassan is a Ghanaian-born professional mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He is also known as “Judo Thunder” due to his extensive background in judo. Alhassan was born and raised in Accra, Ghana, where he received his formal education.

Alhassan began training martial arts at the age of 12, starting out with karate and taekwondo before eventually transitioning to judo upon joining the Accra Judo Club. During this time period, he trained under Master Johnson Opoku Bonsu and quickly acquired several regional championships titles before transitioning into MMA at the age of 19.

In 2009, Alhassan made his professional MMA debut against local fighter Joseph Nketia at Rumble on the Rock 7: Warriors Collide. He won by knockout just 40 seconds into round 1 via punches; a testament to how formidable he already was even then. Over the next two years he would go undefeated for 10 more matches prior to signing with UFC in 2017 when they were actively looking for new talent from abroad.

After signing with UFC, Abdul’s career has taken off rapidly; during that first year alone he went undefeated for 4 fights including gaining wins over Omari Akhmedov and Sabah Homasi respectively – two very respected fighters whom are still active today within UFC itself. In 2018 however things took an unfortunate turn after losing 2 consecutive bouts due to disqualifications stemming from illegal strikes which both resulted in no contests being called by referees or judges respectively – thus culminating up til now Abdul’s current record of 11-1 as an MMA practitioner overall within UFC history books exclusively speaking though not counting his previous amateur records or other promotions such as Bellator etc..

Since then Alhassan has improved himself further both mentally & physically while seeking redemption; often times citing long winding speeches regarding never giving up until you reach your goals despite any setbacks along the way amidst intense training regimens that have been documented heavily through social media platforms like Instagram & Twitter etc… His latest fight being versus Mounir Lazzez back on May 8th 2021 wherein it ended with him winning via KO punch again just like old times much similar towards how it all started out initially too! All told judging from everything we’ve seen so far there’s no doubt Abdul is one competitor always ready give their best effort every single time regardless whatever situation might present itself inside octagon ring but only future will tell us what happens next ultimately!
