Anthony Njokuani only started fighting because he wanted to be a better b-boy.
As an angry Texas teenager from a Nigerian immigrant family, Njokuani found an unlikely cultural refuge and new friends in breakdancing. His avid pursuit of the hip-hop art led him to a kickboxing class to improve his athleticism.
About 15 years later, Njokuani is among the most exciting prospects in mixed martial arts, with a new kickboxing coach who has honed his skills while reimagining his training regimen.
