Kamaru Usman who announced his trip back to Nigeria after his gobsmacked win over teammate Gilbert Burns at the martial arts Welterweight division’s Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), has made good on his promise as he touches down his home country in grand style and wild anticipation.
The first-ever Nigerian-born undisputed UFC welterweight champion, who has cemented his spot with fourteen straight wins, making history as the longest ever holder of a win-streak in the Welterweight division, arrives in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory on June 10, 2021, to a flurry of activities with a subsequent stop at Lagos before making it to his home state of Edo, where he will visit family and friends and initiate a community activation plan that involves making lives better for the Edo State people.
