Nicco Fertitta carries a heavy burden with him, as the son of UFC co-owner and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta.
Instead of smashing heads inside a cage – or working in a boardroom – the younger Fertitta does his damage out on the football field.
As a safety for Bishop Gorman in Nevada, Nicco has received several college scholarship offers. He made his choice for a future over the weekend, agreeing to attend the University of Notre Dame.
Fertitta is listed as a three-star recruit by most services.
“Congrats Nicco,” UFC president Dana White posted on Twitter. “Big time kid.”
