UFC: No single plans to quit fighting now, Kamaru Usman says.

After suffering his second defeat to Leon Edwards, Nigeria’s welterweight champion in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Kamaru Usman, said he was not considering retiring anytime soon.

At UFC 286 on Saturday night in London, England, Edwards defeated Usman, also known as “the Nigerian Nightmare,” for the second time in a row, taking the trilogy series 2-1.

He also made sure Usman, 35, lost his title as Welterweight champion and had little chance of winning it again.

However, Usman made it clear that he had no plans to retire anytime soon during a post-fight cage interview that was published on the UFC website.

“I think I did enough to win the fight, but I knew it was a close fight. Great gameplan, great gameplan.

“You know, I’ve always said it from the start: I knew I’d see Leon again, and we did it. I’m not done. I’ll see him again, but he put on a hell of a gameplan.

“I’ve always given him props for everything he’s been able to accomplish. He’s a brother, like myself. Much respect. London, you’ve got yourself a hell of a guy, a great champion.

“I’m going to get back with my coaches because I’m one of those guys, I can’t sit for too long, I start getting antsy. I’m going to talk to my coaches.

“I’ll get back, sit back, relax and spend some time with my daughter,” Usman said.

He noted that fighters go through a lot while preparing for their fight just to thrill their fans.

“You get to come here and get entertained by us, but a lot of you guys don’t know what we go through in training camp just to prepare for this, just to get in there and give you guys a show.

“So guys, much respect to the fighters. We put it on the line for you guys each and every time.”

In a follow-up statement on Twitter, Usman vowed to “go back to work.”

“A special thank you to my management, family, friends, and fans.

“I appreciate each and every one of you. Wasn’t my night but as always, we go back to work. Congratulations Leon Edwards great work.”

There are reports before the fight that Usman was suffering from a well-known knee issues along with lingering hand injuries. (NAN)
