Kamaru Usman tells TMZ Sports … he was all set to battle Jorge Masvidal in July — till the coronavirus killed these plans. But he is nonetheless prepared to hand out one other ass-whooping, stat!
So, whereas the UFC tries to line up the subsequent battle for the UFC welterweight champ — he is speaking mad trash to Masvidal, Colby Covington and naturally … Conor McGregor.
“Honestly, if I’m being honest, do I believe that he deserves the fight next? No, I don’t think that he deserves the fight. But at the same time, he’s got the hype right now.”
“He seriously thinks he’s a superstar. He’s talking about how I’m the most famous fighter, I’m more famous than Conor and this and that. You are drinking your own Kool-Aid right now. He forgets that literally less than a year ago or two years ago he was just ‘Journeyman George.'”
“Now you lost some weight, did a little Spanish reality show and came back and now he thinks he’s just Jacques Cousteau or something. My man, relax!”
Remember, Kamaru beat Colby’s ass again at UFC 245 in December. Covington desires a rematch.
“Colby I’ll be more than happy to put another cannon to your face. Easy as that.”
“I’d be crazy if I said I didn’t want that fight because Conor is one of those guys that’s transcended the sport.”
“And of course, I think people would love to see me go in there and spank him any way that I want. So, that’s a fight that I always want.”
“So, if Conor’s feeling froggy that fight could happen anytime. So, that’s a wild card right there, that could happen any time. If he’s feeling froggy, if he wakes up on the right side of the bed and is like ‘You know what? I want to get my ass beat today!’ … that fight could happen any time.”
Kamaru wraps up with a particular message to Colby and Jorge … you do not wanna miss that.
