    Or the fact that Israel moved to NZ at the age of 13 doesn't make him African?

    Africa is taking over. Usman, Israel, Cormier, Jones. Now we just need Mike Perry to get another belt for the brothers.

    You Americans are funny mfers. Usman moved to your country at the age of 8 and you still call him African?

    What the fuck does it take for one to be one of yours?

    Usman identifies way more Nigerian than American so that was his decision

    Right, cause where you live matters more than where you are actually born. Dumbass

    If you were born in Nigeria, and you spent 8 years there before moving here, you are Nigerian-American. One of us, sure but still African at the core and definitely considered an African UFC champion rather than an American one.

    Funny they got the majority of the minority votes. But keep preaching that far left hate lines.
