Born in the northeast region of Ghana in a town called Walewale, Euro Jonathan Bafawuse, a.k.a Jonathan Euro comes from a family of wrestlers. As four of his uncles were well experienced in the sport, Euro decided to take his chance on the sport at the age of 12. After years of perfecting his craft as a grappler, he developed his versatility in kickboxing and Muay Thai. As a well-polished product in mixed martial arts, Euro fights for the African Fighting Championship and Pro Fighting Factory.
As the top kickboxer in Ghana, Bafawuse has continued to elevate his abilities to heights where he one day would like to see himself in the UFC. Being a wrestler for almost twenty years, his favorite wrestler/fighter is Brock Lesnar. He would like to accomplish the same thing that Lesnar has accomplished and that is to become the UFC Champion, only at 80kg (176.37 lbs). That is a little bit above the welterweight standards, but that would be his targeted division.
When he’s not fighting, he trains around 20 fighters at the Heroes Fighting Gym. He prepares his fighters for their next bout day by day, whenever that may be. As for training during the novel coronavirus pandemic, he has not wavered one bit as he practices social distancing, washes his hands, wears a mask, and doesn’t show any symptoms of the virus.
He is the coach/training partner of fellow Ghanaian Born fighter, Wilder Karma, who met him at the age of 11. Training together has given them a combined 24-1 record in kickboxing, Muay Thai, and MMA. With sights on making the big-time, they continue to stay in touch and train regularly despite the conditions that they face during this pandemic.
Ghana has exactly 60,115 cases with 635 new cases along with 55,955 recoveries overall and 249 recently. Should the pandemic pass sooner than later, we might be able to see these two men in the Octagon in due time.
