Reining Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman, was cageside for the UFC 246 pay-per-view (PPV) event last Sat. night (Jan. 18, 2020) in Las Vegas, Nevada, hoping to get a glimpse at some of the fireworks inside the Octagon.

All while his Twitter account was blowing up with vile, racist remarks.

Usman had his social media accounts hacked during the “McGregor vs. Cowboy” event and recently got them back under control. On Monday, the “Nigerian Nightmare” reacted to the incident that left him a little bit shook (and rightly so).

“It’s really sad and scary that we live in a world where someone can wake up only with the intentions to cause harm to someone else,” Usman wrote on Twitter. “Whomever it was that did what you did Saturday night, just know that KARMA catches us all.”

I had my identity stolen back in early 2007 but quickly got it back because it wasn’t worth anything. Plus, the perpetrator started getting phone calls from all the debt collectors who were after me so yeah, joke’s on you sucka.

Usman is fresh off his technical knockout win over Colby Covington in the UFC 245 main event, which took place last month in “Sin City.” No telling yet if “The Nigerian Nightmare” will fight Jorge Masvidal next, or the winner of Leon Edwards vs. Tyron Woodley.

Stay tuned.
