Kamaru Usman Responds To Twitter Hackers Who Abused Conor McGregor From His Account
Kamaru Usman has responded to the hackers who tweeted insulting messages to Conor McGregor from his account.
Usman's account tweeted a variety of messages aimed at McGregor and his family on Saturday night before McGregor's victory over Donald Cerrone.
The current welterweight champion has taken to Twitter to address the hacking and condemn the messages.
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. Whomever it was that did what you did Saturday night, Just know that KARMA catches us all :punch:.

He said: "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. Whomever it was that did what you did Saturday night, Just know that KARMA catches us all."
UFC President Dana White also addressed the messages post-fight on Saturday night and revealed he had to call McGregor about the insults.
White said: "I phoned Conor and said don't do anything, don't react.
"Usman and [manager] Ali [Abdelaziz] were sitting right in front of where Conor came out.
"The first thing I did was to tell Conor; he didn't believe he was hacked.
"They put his bank account and his pin out there, that's crazy s***."
The tweets have since been deleted but McGregor doubted they were all the act of hackers.
'Notorious' stated: "I am sceptical of that. One came through early and it had all the hallmarks of that f *** weasel Ali.
"They give him control of the accounts. He gets something and writes it through their thing.
"I've been in discussions with these athletes about helping them out and I know what would happen.
"The first one had all the hallmarks of your man who has done it in the past.
"Dana sent a message to say it had happened but I only saw the first one.
"This has been happening for years, I've been dealing with this for a long time."
