Allies and enemies of "Mean" Hakeem Dawodu will want to keep their eyes and ears perked on Saturday, Nov 2, 2019, when "Mean" Hakeem enters the ring at the prestigious Madison Square Gardens in New York, NY, the most famous fight venue in the world, for UFC 244 as he faces off against Julio Arce.

Fighting at Madison Square Gardens is a lifelong dream for fighters that many fail to achieve.

Champion's Creed coaches and staff would like to congratulate "Mean" Hakeem on this great milestone in his professional fighting career!

Cornered by Champion's Creed's Head MMA Coach Brian Bird, Hakeem is planning to add to his current 3 Fight UFC Winning Streak!

Dawodu (10-1-0) finished his most recent fight with a jaw-dropping head kick against Japan's Yoshinori (The Rising Star) Horie in the third round at UFC 240 in Edmonton.
