When it comes to the athletic profession, opportunities always present themselves even when the hand you are dealt does not pay off immediately. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will be introduced to a lion of golden light roaring and standing tall amongst the arid landscape in the show me state.

Olajiga has fought for several organizations over the course of his career as a professional MMA fighter including Fighting Alliance Championship and Legacy Fighting Alliance.
