Mixed Martial Arts: Alex Matsiko Vows To Down Nigerian

Ugandan fighter Alex Matsiko has expressed his readiness ahead of his Mixed Martial Arts brawl with Nigerian Emmanuel Osuji.

This is one of the 11 fights lined up this Saturday at Serena Hotel in what promises to be a classy evening organised by 1zone MMA group.

Matsiko who trades as ‘Lion heart’ said that he will destroy the Nigerian in seconds.

“I am ready to show Uganda that we have talent in mixed martial arts, Matsiko spoke with confidence on Thursday.

“To my opponent Osuji I want to assure him that I am ready to take him down.”

Matsiko’s strength and confidence is founded after holding a couple of training sessions in the Tiger Muay Thai in an MMA training camp in Thailand.

“I am the Lion Heart, I have been training with the best, whoever he is, I will beat him.”

But the soft spoken Osuji remained unmoved, and used the old adage that ‘actions speak louder than words’.

Also Ugandan Female Fighter Rebecca Among will face off with Juliet Chukwu from Nigeria as she tries to keep her legacy as Uganda’s Champion.

“I am a champion and no body is going to take this away from me,” Among said briefly.

This is the second event of Mixed Martial Arts organised in Uganda and has attracted other fighters from Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, Ethiopia among others.

The show will be hosted by Ronnie McVex, Etania and Sheila Salta with performances from Musician Navio.
