Nate Ghareeb is back in action at CES 65 on Sunday afternoon in Providence, RI, LIVE on UFC Fight Pass.
Ghareeb is quickly establishing himself as one of the sport’s top young prospects, but he’s far from an overnight success.
Ghareeb’s path in MMA began when he was a high school wrestler. Inspired by the likes of Chuck Liddell and Anderson Silva, Ghareeb took his first MMA class after his college wrestling career ended due to injury.
“I fell in love with the sport from my very first class,” Ghareeb says. “And the rest is history.”
Almost eight years later, Ghareeb has won four of his first five professional bouts. All of the Bellator vet’s wins have come by first-round finish.
“I think I’ve done well so far, but this is just the beginning. There’s so much more to accomplish. I’m happy, but I’m definitely not content,” he says.
“Making it to the UFC is a goal, but I don’t just want to get there. I want to compete and dominate at the highest level. I want to really represent Western Massachusetts on the global stage.”
