If you like both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the UFC, you may have noticed former Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman in Wakanda’s throne room when M’Baku walks in eating chicken and talking about how to deal with Namor.

Even though Usman shows up a few times and says a few words, he doesn’t play a very important role in the movie. But who does the former UFC champion actually play?

Yes, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s IMDb page says that Usman’s appearance is more like a cameo because his role is small and has no real effect on what happens in the movie. As a result, the fighter is only credited as ‘Naval Officer,’ which is how he is listed on the film’s IMDb page.

Even so, it was nice to see another UFC fighter on the big screen, especially in what could be the biggest movie of 2022. By the way, you should definitely go see that movie because it’s a beautiful journey and a touching tribute to Chadwick Boseman.

Usman isn’t the first former UFC fighter to move to Hollywood or even the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Georges St-Pierre, who played a mercenary in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, can be proud of this.
