Sodiq Yusuff Wiki Update Wiki

Sodiq Olamide Yusuff was born in Lagos, Nigeria and moved to the United States with his mother and brother at the age of nine. Yusuff was drawn to combat sports through superhero movies and anime, and he starting telling others that he aspired to fight in the UFC while he was in middle school. Yusuff briefly attended Bowie State University before dropping out to train MMA full time. Yusuff lives in Temple Hills, Maryland and trains at Team Lloyd Irvin. Yusuff is a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

Yusuff went 7-0 as an amateur with six stoppage victories before making his professional debut in 2016. A 5-0 earned him a shot at the Titan FC Featherweight Championship, which he would lose to Luis Gomez by KO (Titan FC 47). Yusuff bounced back with a TKO victory to earn an appearance on Season 2 of Dana White's Contender's Series. He would defeat Mike Davis (who would himself enter the UFC later on) via unanimous decision to earn a UFC contract.

Yusuff won his first four UFC fights, defeating Suman Mokhtarian (UFC Fight Night: dos Santos vs. Tuivasa)(Performance of the Night) and Gabriel Benitez (UFC 241) by TKO and Sheymon Moraes (UFC on ESPN: Barboza vs. Gaethje) and Andre Fili (UFC 246) by unanimous decision. In his two most recent fights, Yusuff has lost to Arnold Allen by unanimous decision (UFC on ABC: Vettori vs. Holland) and defeated Alex Caceres by unanimous decision (UFC Fight Night: Santos vs. Ankalaev).
