Nigerian UFC legend Kamaru Usman has expressed appreciation for fans’ support but vowed to bounce back from his weekend defeat.

He was knocked out by British-Jamaican fighter Lewis Edwards when Usman appeared to be seconds away from a 16th consecutive victory.

Had he won, Usman would have tied an all-time UFC record.

But following his shock defeat and the outpouring of support from fans around the world, Usman was relieved.

I am truly overwhelmed by all the support. I am ok, just got caught in the right spot,” he said via twitter

These things happen. We will learn from them and do what greatness requires.”
