UFC Fighter Ode Osbourne (8-3)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

Ode “The Jamaican Sensation” Osbourne is a fascinating UFC bantamweight to keep your eye on. Before getting his shot on “Dana White’s Contender Series”, Osbourne went on a three-fight winning streak where he finished all of his opponents in the first round. He then got invited to compete on season three of the contender series to fight for a possible contract. Osbourne won his fight via armbar in the first round and got a contract.

Osbourne made his UFC debut in January of this year but lost to a tough Brian Kelleher. Osbourne has a ton of talent and a fun personality to become a star and will show it in his next fight.

On top of being a professional fighter, he is a math teacher.

When asked when he wants to fight again he responded “As soon as possible. I’ll fight tomorrow if I could.”
