I had the pleasure of having a short interview with Nick Strickland about his mission to bring MMA to Africa. And here it is:
KH: Tell us a little bit about and how you gained an interest in helping bring MMA to Africa?
NS: My name is Nick Strickland, I’m originally from Zimbabwe. I now live in the United Kingdom and have done for past 5 years. Being an African and growing up there I know first hand the difficulties and hardships people go through day to day. This project will secure jobs and help the future of mma in Africa and world wild! I wanna take what I love to the place I love.
KH: What made you decide to bring your ideas to fruition and begin actively lobbying for your cause?
NS: hard work pays off! And me just sitting on my backside id be like every other person who wants to do some good! I’m firm believer in that.
KH: How long have you been pursuing this goal?
NS: Been at it just over a year.
KH: What things do you hope to achieve by your mission to bring MMA to Africa?
NS: Like I said before, it’s all about creating jobs and securing the beautiful sport!
