There’s no argument that Kamaru Usman will go down as one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time. The undisputed champion of the welterweight division has raked in notable victories over the likes of Jorge Masvidal, Colby Covington, Rafael dos Anjos, Leon Edwards among others, and is riding on a 15-fight win-streak. Needless to say, Usman could well be the greatest welterweight fighter in the history of the sport.
The Nigerian Nightmare is a family man. Needless to say, the trash-talking is only part of the game, Usman is a true gentleman for those around him.
Is Kamaru Usman married?
Kamaru Usman is reportedly married to Eleslie Dietzsch according to an entertainment outlet, PlayersGF. She is Brazilian and is the mother to her beautiful daughter with Kamaru Usman named Samirah. Usman’s daughter Samirah is quite famous on social media networks as Usman continues to post lovely pictures with her on the photo-sharing platform. However, not much is known about Mrs. Kamaru Usman.
Usman hails from Nigeria and is married to a Brazilian. He revealed his wife is from Brazil in an interview dating back to 2016.
“I’m loving Brazil, my girlfriend is Brazilian, my daughter is half-Brazilian”

Kamaru Usman daughter – Samirah
Kamaru Usman shares beautiful moments with his daughter Samirah on social media. Behind that beast that steps inside the Octagon with the longest-active undefeated streak in the welterweight division, Usman has a funny and jovial side that only comes out in front of his daughter Samirah.
The funny side of the Nigerian Nightmare
Usman is often hated by fight fans for his fighting style and approach inside the Octagon. However, one cannot deny that his fight against Colby Covington at UFC 245 will go down arguably as one of the greatest fights of all time.
Additionally, his back-to-back knockout wins over Gilbert Burns and Jorge Masvidal will go down as some of the most incredible moments in the history of the sport. Kamaru Usman is the first fighter to get a stoppage win over Jorge Masvidal after he finished Gamebred with a vicious right hand to defend his welterweight gold in the headliner at UFC 261 in Florida.
Here’s Kamaru Usman’s funny side as he dances with his daughter and has a fun time. Needless to say, behind that rock-solid personality is a fun-loving father who likes to spend time with his daughter.
Kamaru Usman’s brother – Mohammed Usman
Usman is not the only fighter in his family. Usman’s brother Mohammed Usman also competes in mixed martial arts. Mohammed is younger than Usman and competes in the Professional Fighters League or the PFL. He is a heavyweight contender with ferocious power in his hands.
Mohammed Usman rejected the offer to fight inside the UFC Octagon and also rejected ONE and Bellator citing a better offer from PFL. He added that since it’s a sport where anything can happen, he found it wise to go with PFL than with the UFC. Sooner or later, the younger Usman could find his way to the UFC.
