Sodiq Yusuff is an up and coming UFC featherweight fighter based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Born and raised in Nigeria, he was already a standout athlete when he came to America in 2015 to pursue his dream of becoming a professional fighter. He quickly became known for his aggressive style that utilizes both striking and grappling techniques.

Yusuff made his professional MMA debut at Xtreme Caged Combat 11 in January 2018 with a TKO victory over future Bellator veteran Pat Sabatini. After racking up four more victories, the UFC signed him on shortly after. He made his promotional debut at UFC 244 against Gabriel Benitez where he earned “Fight of the Night” honors despite losing via split decision.

Since then, Yusuff has picked up two impressive wins over Suman Mokhtarian and Andre Fili respectively by unanimous decisions. This earned him the Performance of the Night bonus each time as well as praise from fans all around the world who appreciate his entertaining fighting style that doesn’t shy away from stand-up exchanges or ground battles either way you look at it!

Outside of competition, Yusuff is also a motivated individual who works hard to give back to those less fortunate than himself; whether it’s donating food supplies during extreme weather conditions or providing books for students pursuing higher education opportunities – this champion strives to do good whenever possible!

Yusuff’s long term goals are clear: become one of the top fighters in this division and etch his name into history alongside some of MMA’s greatest ever champions such as Jose Aldo or Cris Cyborg! With determination on par with any other competitor out there coupled together with incredible skill sets across multiple disciplines like wrestling & jiu-jitsu – we can expect nothing but greatness from this rising star down the line…
