Some athletes are already full-fledged monsters way before joining the Monster Energy squad. In the case of Kamaru Usman, the evolution into a next-level mixed martial artist has been nothing short of scary. Known as 'The Nigerian Nightmare', the former U.S. collegiate national wrestling champion and Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt broke into the UFC after winning The Ultimate Fighter 21 tournament with a show-stopping performance in 2015. Mixing superior ground control, increasingly lethal striking, and perfect takedown defense into a highly evolved fighting style, Usman took the 170-pound World Championship belt at UFC 235 in March 2019 like it was inevitable. The native of Auchi, Nigeria, also broke ground as the first African champion in UFC history. From there, he only continued to get better... and scarier! Usman is known for going the distance and delivering spectacular knockouts against his toughest rivals, and also breaking ground as the first African champion in UFC history Most importantly, Usman keeps it classy and level-headed when he's not unleashing the beast in the Octagon. And that's the mark of a true champion!
