One thought on “Vuyisile Colossa signs with UFC

  1. I’ve followed Vusi’s career since I met him in 2008. He’d just arrived in Asia from SA and told me he was about to fight Yodsonklai in Hong Kong. Yod was at his peak and Vusi was coming up the ranks. Vusi wasn’t fazed one bit. It was a fantastic fight as were the other times that they met.

    I’ve watched him fight and beat some of the biggest names in Muay Thai and MMA over the years. He’s never taken the easy route and has the kind of grit and perseverance that has earned him legions of fans and made his opponents fear him. I can’t wait for South Africa to get behind him.
