On top of being an elite athlete himself, Brandon also mentors younger fighters who look up to him for guidance about their careers.
Outside the cage, Jenkins is passionate about helping those around him achieve their goals through physical fitness activities like running marathons or participating in triathlons — inspiring both young adults and children alike!
