Featherweight fighter Hakeem Dawodu has just one fight left on his contract with the World Series Of Fighting.
Although he would love to stay with the WSOF, the competitor will be going to the highest bidder, as long as respect comes alongside that money.
“Don’t get me wrong, I like whoever is going to pay me most,” Dawodu told MMA Junkie Radio. “But for me, I want to get in the league where I’m going to get the most respect and most definitely be the best 145er. I want people to have no doubt that I’m one of the best, if not the best 145er out there. I’ve been on a tear and I’ve been fighting tough dudes and I’ve been proving them wrong every time. That’s the road I want to take to solidify my position in the whole division.”
Dawodu is currently undefeated as a professional MMA fighter, with a record of 7-0-1.
The fighter also believes that he can beat the best featherweights in any promotion he competes at.
“I’m definitely ready to fight anybody in the division,” Dawodu said. “I have no doubt in my mind I can put them away and I’m confident even when it’s standing or whether it’s on the ground. Guys keep thinking, ‘I can take Hakeem down and that’s how I’ll beat him.’ That’s not how to beat me any more. I’m confident I can take anybody in the division.”
Hakeem last competed at the WSOF 35, where he defeated UFC veteran Steven Siler by decision.
