Also in attendance was Odudu Otu, the recent winner of the reality tv show, Gulder Ultimate Search.
Odudu who is no stranger to physical exertion and endurance, thanks to his time on 12th season of the Gulder Ultimate Search show, was spotted in the crowd cheering the fighters as they entered and exited the boxing rings at various intervals.
Conversations with Odudu revealed that the game of Mixed Martials Arts ranked high on his list of interests and this was an event he had been anticipating for the longest time since it premiered in January 2022.
