Mixed Martial Arts

When Josh Ofiu isn't attending classes at Gallaudet University, he's battling at the Alaska Fighting Championship bouts. Josh never gets nervous from the buzz of the crowd because he's deaf - which he considers an advantage. Four years ago he was charged with assault. Police said he was part of a mob who came back from to get revenge after being kicked out of a party. That's when Ofiu tried his hand at mixed martial arts. But he hopes to pursue a career as a counselor for deaf children when he graduates.
