Untapped, that would be the description for the entire continent of Africa as far as the MMA world is concerned. Karamu Usman and Israel Adesanya both claim Nigerian roots, and both hold championship belts. Even with this type of exposure, Africa as a whole is relatively new to MMA. Abuja deserves the nod here. It is the capital of Nigeria, and with the two aforementioned fighters being obvious headliners, there are other fighters that could round out a stacked African Native card. The Fight Card should be held in Abujia National Stadium. This is in Nigeria’s capital city.
Everyone wants to see this fight. After this, Izzy can go get beat by Jon Jones. Face it, the move from 185 to 205 has left a trail of dead bodies behind.
Grappler vs. Striker equals classic MMA fireworks.
The Big Ticket, Walt Harris, moves up in ranks because he’s the only guy that’s not scared to fight Ngannou.
I like this fight. Both are fast and hard-hitting bantamweights, which will make for a good show.
Neither guy here is well known to the U.S base, but they have large overseas followings. Abu is from Morocco, which adds more African natives to the card.
Abu has some blazing hand speed as well.
