Who will be next to challenge "The Nigerian Nightmare"?

It seems everyone wants to know who’s next for Kamaru Usman; Jorge Masvidal or Leon Edwards – Now odds have been released for both match ups by Ohmbet. 

Following Kamaru  “The Nigerian Nightmare” Usman’s title defence against Colby Covington at UFC 245, he has now cemented himself as one of the greatest welterweights of all time. In his ongoing, 15 fight win streak, he has dispatched the likes of Rafael dos Anjos, Demian Maia and former champ Tyron Woodley. Having already defeated most of the welterweights ranked in the top 5, many are wondering what’s next for “The Nigerian Nightmare”.


As of now there seem to be two clear-cut alternatives for Usman’s next title defence: Jorge Masvidal and Leon Edwards, and odds have been released for both bouts. Ohmbet have now released odds for both bouts, showing the welterweight as a comfortable favourite in both matchups. Ohmbet have Usman at 1.37 against Masvidal, who sits at three times the bet at 3.0.
