UFC 4 has been making news today with updates and new fighters, but the latest reveal comes in the form of a new 5 Star Fighter.

There aren't many better ways to break the news than with this adorable glimpse at Samirah Usman presenting the 5 Star necklace to Kamaru, but it means he'll be even more of a threat now in UFC 4.

Every 5 Star Fighter in UFC 4

Kamar Usman is joining an elite club, as he will only be the seventh fighter to earn the coveted maximum 5 star rating in UFC 4.

Israel Adesanya, Jon Jones, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Valentina Shevchenko, and Amanda Nunes were all in posession of the maximum 5 Star Overall Rating when UFC 4 launched.

In the update released back in February, Max Holloway joined that grouping as well following a dominant performance against Calvin Kattar.
