In case you weren’t aware, there’s some Calgary flavour at UFC 253 this weekend.

UFO 253 goes down from Fight Island, aka Yas Island, in Abu Dahbi, on Saturday. Hakeem opens up the main card, looking to extend his personal winning streak to five, and beat Zubaira Tukhugov, a Russian with 19 professional wins to his name. 

And, Hakeem’s got a pretty cool backstory, too. He’s a product of Mike Miles Muay Thai in the SE. And fighting isn’t just something he loves. It’s something that turned his life around, a pastime turned into a career, thanks to probation.

For God’s sake, don’t miss Saturday’s card. Should be wild.
