Three current UFC champions hail from Africa. Welterweight and middleweight champions Kamaru Usman and Israel Adesanya represent their home country of Nigeria, while heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou grew up in Cameroon. All six of the populated continent have a current UFC champion.

I love how they all 3 of them also have completely different fighting styles and personalities specially their nick name The Last Stylebender, The Predator and The Nigerian Nightmare all 3 champs living up to their names.They are are absolute inspirations putting the African continent on the map in the MMA world, those 3 continue to make Africa proud
