Humanizing Athletes: UFC Featherweight Nik Lentz’s Favorite Things

UFC Fighter Nik Lentz (30-11)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

Nik “The Carny” Lentz is a crafty UFC veteran that has 44 fights under his belt. 24 of those fights have come inside a UFC octagon.

Here is Lentz finishing Gray Maynard with a head kick followed by ground and pound at UFC 229.

While Lentz is coming off two losses, I would not want to be the fighter standing across from him next. Lentz was poked in the eye during his fight with Arnold Allen that severely affected his ability to fight. He had to wear an eye patch for several weeks after.

Lentz doesn’t have a fight lined up as of April 2020, mainly because of COVID-19 but he will fight again soon.
