Among the most suffocating wrestlers across all UFC weight classes is Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, a fighter few others dared to encounter on his come-up. ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ is just that, and has hardly lost a round in his undefeated promotional run since becoming the Season 21 Ultimate Fighter. Usman’s grappling-heavy style has seen rivals like Colby Covington label him Kamaru ‘Snoozeman’, with eight of his 10 UFC wins coming via decision, while five of his six KO/TKO wins came outside of the top promotion. Just his third pay-per-view appearance came in December of 2019 as he took out Covington in their UFC 245 grudge match, with the Nigerian-American’s star continuing to rise. Putting together years like his 3-0 2018 made him undeniable, and Usman is on track to clear out his division and garner the love his awesome talent deserves.
