Kamaru Usman warns McGregor against fight

Share This Post

Following his incredible victory this past weekend against Colby Covington, in what was one of the best title fights we have seen in the UFC this year, welterweight champion Kamaru Usman has spoken out on the idea of facing Conor McGregor for his 170lb title.

Following Usman’s victory on Saturday night McGregor posted one of his usually cryptic messages on Twitter, seemingly hinting towards taking a run at the welterweight strap.

Usman did not hold back once he heard about McGregor’s tweet, saying the following to TMZ:

“He must want to die, I mean, what?! He must want to die. This is not ’45, ’55. You saw what Khabib did to him. Oh my god, it wouldn’t even be fair if I fought Conor. Much respect to Conor for what he’s done for this sport and transcended it. Nah, this is not what you want”

“Just sit down, little man. Sit down. Learn to walk before you can run because I would hurt that guy.”

Usman in a different class

The Nigerian Nightmare certainly isn’t wrong, after watching him take on Covington at the weekend it’s clear that he’s in a different class to the Irishman. Not only would he be one hell of a challenge for McGregor on the feet, but he would be an absolute terror for Notorious to face on the ground, given what we’ve already seen against the smaller Khabib.

All of this comes before mentioning Usman’s gas tank, which he displayed in fine quality against his opponent this past weekend, something that McGregor has struggled with throughout his career. Stepping up to 170 is only going to exasperate those issues, rather than easing them, it would be utterly foolish of McGregor to think he stands a chance against Usman.

All that being said, it’s entirely possible that McGregor was just highlighting the fact that he has fought at all three weights… or that he’ll be fighting in that division in January… possibly. It’s rarely possible to break down these cryptic messages.
