Humanizing Athletes: MMA Fighter Tafon Nchukwi’s Favorite Things

MMA Fighter Tafon Nchukwi (3-0)

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.

Tafon “Da Don” Nchukwi might only have three professional fights, but he has already caught the eyes of UFC president Dana White and the matchmakers. He is going to have a chance to fight for a UFC contract on Sept. 8, 2020.

Nchukwi is a light heavyweight that fight fans should keep their eyes on. He went pro in 2019 and fought three times. In his three fights, he knocked out all of his opponents, something he prefers.

Nchukwi is coming off a first-round knockout of William Knight, who just received his own UFC contract.

Nchukwi returns to action for the first time in 2020 against Al Matavao. “Da Don” will fight in the main event of week six of “Dana White’s Contender Series” on Sept. 8, 2020, for the chance to get a UFC contract.

When asked what we should expect from his fight Nchukwi said, “expect me to give every piece of these paws to my opponent.”
