Usman is the current UFC welterweight champion and one of the most dominant fighters in the world right now. He is currently on a 19 fight win streak in his career and has looked absolutely unstoppable since joining the UFC. ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ won the welterweight title in 2019 when he dominated Tyron Woodley at UFC 235. It was a clinical performance, and he hasn’t looked back since then. The Nigerian-American mixed martial artist has defended his title five times against some of the best fighters of the division.

He entered the octagon three times in 2021 to defend his belt, which is in many ways unheard of in today’s times. Usman is currently waiting for his next opponent to be announced. During his time off, he seems to be laying back a bit and catching up with the movies. However, his latest experience wasn’t great. Usman recently took to Twitter to show his displeasure towards the latest Matrix movie.
