The main card of UFC 253 opened with Hakeem Dawodu taking on Zubaira Tukhugov in a catchweight clash.

Tukhugov missed weight by four pounds coming into this and was the slight favourite for the clash. The Russian won the first round, just, and seemed set to make it another win under his belt. However, Dawodu came back in the second round and seemed to have got the win there.

The third round was all Dawodu as he kept firing at his Russian rival. The Canadian wasn’t impressed by some of the tactics employed by the Russian and he called him out.

Tukhugov seemed to be a little gassed and tired after the first two rounds and he was running around the Octagon.

Dawodu lost it during the third round and told his rival to “f***** fight” He repeated this a couple of times before being told to stop cussing in a hilarious clip.

Don’t want runners

Dawodu was a little upset after the match, though he shared respect for his opponent. He couldn’t carry the flags of a couple of other countries and brought up the Nigerian one to celebrate.

Jon Anik interviewed the Canadian and he had a straight message for the UFC. Dawodu is now on a five-fight win streak and wanted someone who didn’t run in the Octagon.

He also brought up his streak and wanted to face someone in the top 10.

Dawodu now holds an MMA record of 12 wins, one loss and one draw. The 29-year-old seems to be set for some great things in the Featherweight division, and it will be interesting to see what is next for him.
