Who is UFC star Kamaru Usman’s wife?

Kamaru Usman’s wife is reportedly Eleslie Dietzsch.

She is of Brazillian descent and was born on 22 November, 1986.

Usman prefers to keep his wife out of the limelight, but he addressed his relationship back in 2016 when he referred to Dietzsch as his girlfriend.

There are not many pictures online of the pair as Usman keeps his family life private.

Eleslie is on Instagram, though, and can be found @elesliedoesntgiveaduck.

The 32-year-old was 7-1-0 in his MMA career heading into the fight, but was put to sleep by Sayles.
