Kamaru Usman is one of the greatest fighters in the history of the UFC as well and fans simply have a lot of respect for him. Despite this, Kamaru Usman also has his fair share of haters but it seems he does not let his haters faze him. He lost to Leon Edwards in the UFC 278 headliner in Salt Lake City this past weekend.
Edwards earned an extra $50,000 courtesy of a Performance of the Night bonus. Chael Sonnen recently accused Leon Edwards of cheating his way to a title win over Kamaru Usman in the main event at UFC 278.
The UFC boss believes its ridiculous and unfair of ‘The American Gangster’ to discredit Leon Edwards’ title win with accusations of cheating. The 53-year-old said at the DWCS Season 6, Week 6 post-fight presser:
“He became champion with a head kick. He didn’t win by grabbing the fence. I mean he got absolutely dominated in that whole fight excpet for that couple of minutes in the first round. He got absolutely dominated and you know, that’s completely unfair of Chael Sonnen to say that. That kid sucked it up, dug down deep and landed literally the perfect head kick with like a minute left in the fight. So I would say that that’s silly, ridiculous and absolutely unfair to say.”
Dana White doesn't agree with Chael Sonnen's criticism that Leon Edwards "cheated" with cage grabs to win at #UFC278.
"I would say that that's silly, ridiculous, and absolutely unfair to say about it." 🚫
