Kamaru Usman is without a doubt, one of the best fighters in the history of mixed martial arts. The ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ has proven himself on multiple occasions, and the fact that he stands first in the UFC’s pound for pound category only adds to the case. Usman is one of the most well-rounded fighters in the promotion right now.

As of November 2021, the fighter’s professional record stands at an impressive ratio of 20 wins to one loss. Kamaru Usman has beaten many skilled fighters in the promotion, such as Jorge Masvidal, Tyron Woodley, and Rafael dos Anjos. 

Recently, the pound for pound number one’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz, took to Twitter to boat about his client. Abdelaziz has managed many illustrious names in the industry, such as Khabib Nurmagomedov, Justin Gaethje, and Henry Cejudo. The manager claimed that Usman holds the current BMF title. BMF stands for Baddest Motherf*cker.

In truth, Jorge Masvidal is the fighter that currently holds the BMF title. Dana White specially sanctioned the BMF title for Masvidal’s fight against Nate Diaz at UFC 244. Diaz and Masvidal put on an absolute banger of a fight at UFC 244. Masvidal walked away with the victory after the fight was concluded due to a doctor’s stoppage.

After his win against Nate Diaz, he took on Kamaru Usman at UFC 251, for the UFC Welterweight Championship. However, it was clear that the UFC BMF title was not on the line at UFC 251. Kamaru Usman won the championship fight via a unanimous decision at UFC 251.

What’s next for Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal

Ever since the two faced off at UFC 261, both fighters have taken very different paths. Kamaru Usman has proved himself to be the best in the division. Whereas Jorge Masvidal has been out of action for a long time. We were expecting a return from Masvidal at UFC 269 against the welterweight contender, Leon Edwards. But due to an injury, Jorge wouldn’t be returning to the octagon for a while now.

When it comes to Kamaru Usman, he is far ahead of any competition in the UFC right now. Many speculate that his next opponent could be Leon Edwards since he won’t be facing Masvidal next month. The Nigerian Nightmare also hinted at making a boxing appearance against the Mexican boxing sensation, Canelo Alvarez, in a recent interview. Kamaru Usman is just looking for ways that he can challenge himself and his potential.
