Kamaru Usman, Nigeria's welterweight champion in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), has stated that he has no plans of retiring anytime soon, despite his second consecutive loss to Leon Edwards.

Edwards defeated Usman, popularly known as "the Nigerian Nightmare," at UFC 286, dethroning the welterweight champion and winning their trilogy series 2-1.

During a post-fight interview, Usman made it clear that he was not planning on retiring anytime soon, stating that he believed he had done enough to win the fight.

He also praised Edwards for his excellent game plan and noted that he would see him again in the future. Usman vowed to "go back to work" in a follow-up statement on Twitter.

Usman has been suffering from a well-known knee issue along with lingering hand injuries leading up to the fight. Despite this, the champion put on an excellent performance, demonstrating his grit and determination to fight for his fans. He reminded fans of the challenges fighters face in preparing for fights and thanked his management, family, friends, and fans for their support.

Usman's defeat to Edwards may have dethroned him as the welterweight champion, but it has not diminished his fighting spirit.
