Kamaru Usman is a multi-fight veteran of the UFC and alongside Fightful’s own “Showdown Joe,” is a color commentator for the Titan Fighting Championships.
Usman is also a longtime member of the Blackzilians, which has been rumored to be in the midst of a demise, but not much has changed according to the UFC vet.
“Honestly, for us, nothing changed,” Usman told MMA Junkie. “The only change is we don’t have a big fancy gym, and some of the guys aren’t managed by Glenn (Robinson).”
Usman has fought a grand total of four times in the UFC, earning four victories along the way, but he also believes that the UFC ultimately decides who gets to be a star in the promotion.
“The UFC can make anyone a star,” Usman said. “It’s just they have to believe in you and put the time and money and effort into to you to know it’s going to pay dividends. So, (they aren’t yet promoting me as strongly as possible). When I get back inside the cage, I just have to show them I said what I wanted, and I can prove that. It’s show and prove. That’s how the game goes.”
Usman hasn’t competed since UFC Fight Night 100, where he defeated Warlley Alves by decision.
