UFC 278 Walkout Music: Kamaru Usman Walkout Songs

Rate the music. Hot or not?

Undefeated UFC welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman is about to defend his title for the fifth time this weekend at UFC 278 in a re-match against Leon Edwards. Leon Edwards and Usman first crossed paths when they faced each other at UFC on Fox 17 back in 2015, where Usman went on to win by unanimous decision.

Since then, they have both gone on a tear in the division, each racking up win-after-win, and cleaning out the division until now, where they will face off against each other in a highly-anticipated rematch.

When it comes to his walkout music, Usman’s song choices are different each time. He has not stuck to the same walkout song like so many of his peers do and has instead opted to use a different track for each opponent he has faced.  

One common artist that Usman has gravitated towards is Burnaboy, a popular Nigerian hip-hop artist. Usman has walked out to a song by the Nigerian hip-hop artist in three out of his last four bouts. Will he walk out to Burnaboy again at UFC 278? It’s highly likely. Here’s a list of Kamaru Usman’s walkout songs going all the way back to UFC 245, where he faced off against Colby Covington for the first time.
