Kamaru Usman actually desires to struggle Colby Covington – that a lot is for certain. However is “The Nigerian Nightmare” touring the globe to trace his fellow contender down?

It appears that evidently manner, a minimum of.

In a brief video despatched to MMAjunkie, Usman claims to be on the hunt for his welterweight rival.
