Kamaru Usman Books His Next Fight at UFC 219 in December

October 25, 2017

Rising welterweight contender Kamaru Usman has been itching for a chance to face a top 10 opponent but unfortunately nobody seems to be available before the end of the year.

Of course, Usman is never one to back down from a challenge so he’s accepted a fight against Emil Meek at UFC 219 that takes place on Dec. 30 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

UFC officials announced the matchup on Wednesday.
