The USA-based Ghanaian who begun his career in Judo spanning 22 years with a black belt  transitioned into Mixed Martial Art 2013. He went on to win his first professional bout via technical knockout under 25 seconds and remained undefeated in six before gaining a contract with UFC.

The 37-year old who currently fights in the welterweight division told JoySports’ Razak Musbau that his dream is to become the first Ghanaian to win the UFC title

“My biggest dream now is to win the the UFC title and I hope to do this in 2-3 years time. I have worked hard for this and I believe I have what it takes to win the title. And even more, to become the first Ghanaian to win do so” he said.

He added that “I know it is not gonna be easy  but this is the ultimate prize in the competition and I am determined to achieve it”

After a series of defeats due to poor health condition, Razak bounced back against Claudio Ribeiro on January 14, 2023, UFC Fight Night 217 where he won via knockout in the second round to mark his 12th TKO in 17 bouts as a mixed martial artist.
