The mixed martial artist told GQ in a YouTube video that the woman promised to invest his cash for him.
Usman revealed that the scam happened after he was told to invest his money but didn’t know what he was doing with it.
“I’m like, ‘Alright.’ I didn’t really know what I was doing. So, a friend introduced me to some lady who invests for you. So, she approaches me. We have a conversation. We talk. She was attractive. Of course, nothing happened on that front.
“But she was attractive. So, it was very easy to be distracted. Give her about almost $60,000; haven’t seen that money since. Yeah.
“I don’t think I did my due diligence as far as the homework and the research behind this person. Gave her about 60 bands, and [the money] just flew away.”
