Syafiq Samad “The Slasher”
“TO BE A WORLD CHAMPION”
He emphasized how the sport has taught him about discipline, commitment, moral values and most importantly, humility. “Fight sport and myself – we’re inseparable,” he quipped.
Syafiq’s foray into MMA wasn’t inspired by watching his favorite athlete in action- he took up the sport because of an event that almost took his life. Mistaking him for another person, a group of assailants hacked him brutally, almost killing him. The episode ignited his interest in fight sport and ‘The Slasher’ was born.
