UFC Champion, Kamaru Usman In Nigeria, Meets Yahaya Bello

107

Usman paid a courtesy visit to Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello on his arrival on Thursday. The Nigeria-born fighter is expected to visit Lagos where he would be the guest of the media on Sunday. Usman is on a 19-fight winning streak, the longest ever in the welterweight division. He had not been to Nigeria since he migrated to the United States with his family as an eight-year-old. From Lagos, the martial artist will head to Edo, his home state, for his project. Usman announced on Instagram on Wednesday that he was “coming home”. “I looked at my passport and realised I hadn’t been home since I was a kid, that’s when I knew it was time,” he added. Usman recently defended his title against Jorge Masvidal, knocking the American out in the second round of their meeting to retain his title.
