Usman has lived up to its nickname ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ as the 35-year-old has been undefeated since 2013. Usman has thrashed everyone in his path to reach the level where he is now.

Edwards is currently riding a 9-win streak in the octagon and has toppled the likes of Donald Cerrone, Vicente Luque, and Nate Diaz to secure a rematch against the Nigerian and also his first shot at the gold.
