Tweet of the Day: Kamaru Usman posts adorable photo of daughter sleeping with UFC welterweight title

Kamaru Usman posts a photo of his daughter sleeping with the UFC welterweight title.

Move over teddy bear, hello UFC welterweight title.

To celebrate his championship win over Tyron Woodley at UFC 235, newly-crowned champ Kamaru Usman posted an adorable photo of his daughter sleeping with the title - the same girl he brought into the cage for his post-fight interview at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena.

Check out the Tweet below.

Usman, 31, thrashed long-reigning champ Woodley in the UFC 235 co-main event, becoming the first man to beat ‘T-Wood’ in almost five years. ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ put on a five-round masterclass to take home a unanimous decision, with his strongest round being in the fourth when he almost finished Woodley with a barrage of strikes against the fence.

With the win, Usman surged into the UFC’s top-ten pound-for-pound rankings and is expected to defend his newly-acquired title against Colby Covington, whom he recently got into a heated physical altercation with at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas.
