Hakeem and Conor McGregor in SBG MMA Training Ireland before his UFC debut.

'Mean' Hakeem Dawodu meets Conor 'The Notorious' McGregor

Mean Hakeem headed to Ireland this week to start a training camp with John Kavanagh, Conor McGregor's coach, and guess who he met his first day there!? The Notorious man himself.

These kinds of opportunities come with a lot of pressure and expectation.

- Mean Hakeem

Champion's Creed has started a Go Fund Me Campaign to relieve some of those pressures

Let Hakeem fight for his future while the rest of us cheer him on. When a UFC fighter is first trying to get off the ground, it's financially difficult, because of the time commitment it takes to train.

The support from fundraisers like this go a long way and allows Hakeem to receive the financial support so that he can focus on getting ready for his UFC debut.

From Ireland with Gratitude

I always wanted to be in the UFC. Now that I have the opportunity to be able to train with such high level athletes, I am going to soak it all up! I am so grateful for everything happening right now and especially to Brian Bird at Champions Creed for setting it all up.

Champion's Creed is a strong and incredible martial arts facility! The coaching is of an elite level yet not intimidating to new individuals wishing to try something out of their comfort zone. The space is VERY generous. After seeing other facilities, I have quickly come to appreciate the amount of room there is to train, taking into account the regular number of students in attendance. You won't regret your decision to train with an amazing team and welcoming family! -Mark Chisholm
