    “As a fellow Nigerian, we all get a fight where we gotta fight at 30%. That was my 30%”.

    Obviously, a playful nod the champ and fellow Nigerian, Kamaru Usman.

    Good stuff from “Super” Sodiq. Had a great match with a decorated striker in Sheymon Moraes.

    Called out Kron for his next match because after beating a striking specialist, he wants to beat a grappling specialist.

    I caught about 70% of his 30% interview. I was having an off day.

    He might have been born in Nigeria but his schooling in the US must be shit, he hasn't worked out how percentages work.
    If he was at 30% he'd have been stopped in the first 10 seconds.

    I actually thought it was hilarious that he said it. He has a new fan in me.

    He barely beat Moraes, and probably would've lost if not for that knockdown. Not that impressed.

    It was fun and funny. Cute, even.

    It would have been a lot less funny for him if he knew he was having an off night for whatever reason and didn't eke out a win. So in that regards, he's lucky.

    You right. They were one and one, and that knockdown sealed the third. He still beat Moraes at his own game, so hespek for that.

    Nah bro you’re wrong. A nice Nigerian man called me and gave me a killer deal on a timeshare, and all I had to do was give him my credit card number.

    On a separate note, Kamaru’s father is actually a scammer and is currently in jail for fraud.

    Moraes has only lost to Zabit and Marlon Moraes beforehand. Very good fighter.
