American mixed martial brave artist and former collegiate wrestler Bubba Jenkins who is also a world champion is expected to touch down in Ghana on Monday for the week-long activity to celebrate the “year of return” which has other notable celebrities visiting the country.
The reigning combat champion, who has traced his roots back to Ghana is set to visit and reconnect with his “Lost” Heritage.
His great grandparents were part of the slaves taken from Ghana, worked hard and bought themselves out of slavery to be “Free-Men” in America. His dad who was also a Christian missionary came to live in Ghana; Nungua to be precise until his passing. It is due to these factual events about his family history that’s why he is coming to Ghana. He wants to reconnect himself to the land where most of his family members have lived before.
“The Unicorn Slayer” as he’s called in the ring upon arrival would embark on several activities which include, a courtesy call visit on the Nungua Mants3, The chief of the town where his father lived. His other agenda aside touring historic places in the country would be to advocate for the MMA sport in which he has achieved many wins and if possible ignite the passion for future MMA superstars to emerge from his home country Ghana.
His record as an MMA fighter is 14 wins, 6 of his wins came by Knockout, 3 came by submission and 5 came by way of unanimous decision.
