Wade’s guest today is Chike Lindsay, a professional Muay Thai world champion and MMA fighter from Atlanta, Georgia. Chike has won many titles throughout his career, has eight champion belts, and has fought some of the best fighters in the world — but through it all, he still remains extremely humble.
