Raised in a traditional African way, Yusuff who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) does not see sense in why parents spank their children.

"Now I realize we was on some nut shit FR. Idk if I'll never spank my own but the idea don't sit the same anymore."
The 28-year-old who has a Blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the MMA fighters representing Nigeria in the UFC along with Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.
