Kamaru Usman injury confirmed

Former UFC welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman, was spotted with a bandage on his arm, indirectly confirming the information that he will not be able to reach the title rematch with Leon Edwards in two and a half months.

On December 29, the fighter attended the Face Off Fight Night 3 tournament in Nigeria and clearly demonstrated to everyone that something was wrong with his hand.

The day before, Usman outlined his goal for the current year, but at the same time he avoided specifics and limited himself to abstract promises.

“This year I want to climb as high as possible, and at the same time be as far from my ceiling as possible,” the Nigerian wrote on the social network on January 1. “I want to stretch out my arms and not feel the walls. Absolute freedom is the goal for 2023. It will be a breakthrough!

According to the UFC plan, a title rematch between Leon Edwards and Kamaru Usman was supposed to headline UFC 286 in London on March 18, but it looks like the Brit will have to make the first defense of his championship belt against another opponent.
