Embracing the Fight: The True Spirit of a Fighter

The world of combat sports is filled with tales of grit, determination, and the unyielding will to succeed. Fighters from all walks of life step into the ring or cage, ready to put it all on the line in pursuit of victory. It is a world that demands respect, and one fighter, in particular, embodies the true spirit of a fighter.

In Episode 11 of the OverDogs Podcast, Sedriques Dumas shared his thoughts on the sport, the challenges he has faced, and his unwavering determination to succeed. “I respect everybody, you know, that’s doing this and stuff. So I just look, you know, look how the OGs did it, you know, and how everybody has done it. I only been doing this for six years, like as an amateur and as a pro right now, animated to the UFC. So I’m not with that cocky talk, whatever. Like I tell people, like, nah, buddy, you know, I like to strike. So either we’re going to bang it out for 15 minutes or you feel me, like something’s going to happen.” he stated.

This fighter’s journey is one that is marked by perseverance and a refusal to back down. “I’ve had people like, you know, praise Allah, he put me in a situation, you know, to get where I need to be,” he reflected. His faith and belief in himself have been the driving force behind his success, propelling him to new heights in the world of combat sports.

But the fighter is quick to acknowledge that the road to success is paved with obstacles and challenges. “Yeah, man, I’m just trying to learn, bro. Like I tell people, like, if I got to go, like, you know, I’ll press Allah, you know, he put me in this situation, you know, to get where I need to be. But if I need to be in that ring for 15 minutes and stuff like that, bro, them are a little test that I got to take, you know, that’s going to show like the difference between being a man or you’re going to be a pussy because I’m not going to lie, a lot of these dudes that I have seen in the UFC that are in my weight class have been pussies.” he declared. It’s this type of no-nonsense attitude that has endeared him to fans and made him a force to be reckoned with in the world of combat sports.

Sedriques’ love for the sport is evident in his approach to training and competing. “I love fighting. Like, you know, like, you know, people see me like I work and, you know, I make sure I stay in the gym 24/7, work my ass off,” he shared.
