Kamaru Usman: Nigerian nightmare meets boxing legend Mike Tyson

Kamaru Usman, UFC undisputed welterweight champion, is basking in the euphoria of meeting boxing legend and his idol Mike Tyson, saying he would learn from him as he takes a huge step on his career in fighting sports.

The 'Nigerian nightmare' was full of blatant excitement as he uploaded the picture of him and Tyson on his photo-sharing platform Instagram on Friday, January 3, to the delight of his fans.

Captured inside what looked like a restaurant, the picture showed Kamaru sit in the middle of Tyson and another sport personality, posing with a lovely mien suggesting he was ready to follow the path of the legends.

The Auchi-born was recently on his incredibly breath-taking warrior form as he majestically toed into the Octagon and staged a 'nightmare' presence that went down as one of the best moments in the history of UFC.

Kamaru defeated the American UFC star Colby Covington through a brutal 5th round knock-out to retain his UFC welterweight belt in style at T-Mobile Arena.
