UFC champion Kamaru Usman has launched an extraordinary rant on his Snapchat, during which he tells his haters to kill themselves.
Usman is arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC right now. The Nigerian Nightmare is on a fourteen-fight winning streak in the UFC, which has seen him rise from a relatively unknown fighter to the man to beat in the sport.
