Youssef Zalal UFC Featherweight was Just In | This Just In Episode #007

This Just In

This week my guest is the powerful Youssef Zalal, UFC Flyweight fighter. I have known Youssef for quite some time and he really is one of my favorite fighters, but it is not just his fighting style I like, I just really enjoy him as a human. Before Youssef could be seen fighting every few months for the UFC he would always make sure to find the camera when he was cornering a teammate, and he’s always happy, he’s always smiling, just one of the most charismatic people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Please enjoy my discussion with the great Youssef Zalal! Be sure to follow Youssef on all the social media!
