In the podcast, Milos Sarcev emphasized this point, drawing a fascinating comparison between Coleman’s journey and Dauda’s potential. “Just like Ronnie Coleman back in the day, he was on the stage as great as he was, but, he, was not really seen…until he was seen”. Sarcev elaborated further, passionately expressing that even though some might think he’s singling out other competitors or being biased, he believes in Dauda.
