Sodiq Yusuff is making some noise in the UFC’s featherweight division after three straight wins to kick off his career in the promotion.

The Nigerian up-and-comer will try to continue his fast rise in the rankings when he fights Andre Fili at UFC 246 on Saturday night.

Yusuff spoke with NESN’s Michaela Vernava and talked about his upcoming bout and how he also gets inspiration from fellow Nigerian UFC champions Israel Adesanya and Kamaru Usman.
