Nigerian fighter Israel Adesanya has taken YFC by storm. Named Fighter of the Year for 2020 at the World MMA Awards, the UFC Middleweight champion now has a 20-0 career record. Not only this, but he managed to defend his title against Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa in the Octagon, two tough opponents.

After his TKO victory against Brazilian Paulo Costa on September 27 he opened up about where his decision to practice MMA came from: “Paulo is a tyrant, but for me, it’s not news. I’ve suffered from this all my life. I have the ability to beat these people and that’s what I do. I dedicate this victory to everyone who suffers from bullying, whether at school or at work. You have to respond and fight back.”

Nigerian-American Kamaru Usman

Kamaru “The Nigerian Nightmare” Usman is one of the most decorated fighters in UFC history. The former NCAA Division II wrestler only had one knockout victory in his first 10 UFC fights before he took out Colby Covington, Gilbert Burns and Masvidal with punches in the past 18 months.

In 2019 he was crowned the first African-born Champion beating Tyron Woodley in the welterweight division.

Cameroon’s Francis Ngannou

After competing in French and European MMA leagues, Francis Ngannou decided he was the next big thing in the UFC heavyweight division. And then he produced 16 wins and only three losses!

Last month, Ngannou took down Stipe Miocic with ferocious punches leading to a devastating 2nd round knockout to claim the heavyweight title at UFC 260.

He is known for being the hardest recorded puncher in history, no wonder he has been called “The Predator”.
