‘Spark who?’ Kamaru Usman warns Conor McGregor of his desire to chase after welterweight gold
UFC welterweight champ Kamaru Usman believes Conor McGregor ought to fret about his own department prior to thinking of 170 pounds.
In a current Q&A on Twitter, McGregor (22-5 Mixed Martial Arts, 10-4 UFC) declared he would score another knockout success if he were to combat for the welterweight title, much like he did when he recorded both the UFC featherweight and light-weight titles all at once by ending up Jose Aldo and Eddie Alvarez.
“Tremendous! I love this record! I fight for the 170lb title I will spark him too. That would be fastest ko in ufc title fight (13 seconds) Most knockdowns in ufc title fight (5) And then another KO in a ufc title fight. 3 title fights. 3 ko’s. 3 new records. It’s right there!”
However Usman (19-1 Mixed Martial Arts, 14-0 UFC), who has actually looked absolutely nothing except dominant in his previous couple of title defenses, believes McGregor remains in over his head if he believes he’s going to knock him out.
“Spark who?? You must be talking about that pipe you’ve been smoking. Unlike you, if I’m gonna talk shit ill @ U. Now be quiet before I call Poirier or Khabib or Diaz to finish you again
It’s not the first time McGregor has gone after Usman. McGregor is 2-1 at 170 pounds and has expressed interest in going after third UFC title on numerous occasions. “The Notorious” didn’t eliminate a go back to welterweight upon recovery from his leg break in a TKO loss to Dustin Poirier as he prepares for a 2022 return.
