Conor McGregor Feels ‘Extremely Confident’ to Beat Kamaru Usman at 170lbs, Eyes to Add Another UFC belt Under His Name

Poirier v McGregor ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - JANUARY 23: Conor McGregor of Ireland prepares to fight Dustin Poirier in a lightweight fight

After watching Kamaru Usman beating Jorge Masvidal in the UFC welterweight title bout, Conor McGregor is now promising to regain his welterweight title by defeating Usman.

Usman has been phenomenal with no defeat record at UFC. Last Saturday, he defended the welterweight belt one more time against Gamebred. Now Kamaru doesn’t have any top-ranked opponent on his list as he defeated all the fighters in the welterweight division.

However, the Notorious wished to move up his weight and fight in the welterweight division. “I am extremely confident that I would be able to defeat Kamaru Usman at 170 lbs and earn another UFC championship belt under my name,” McGregor expressed.

McGregor’s currency weighs around 156 lbs, and he is 14 pounds away from moving up to the UFC welterweight. And it seems he is eagerly waiting to gain some weight. “Send me in, and I’ll pop that big pimple. Get 3 belts to go with my 3 commas,” McGregor tweeted.

Nevertheless, Conor McGregor previously lost weight and fought in the featherweight division in 2015. Later he unified the featherweight title at UFC 194 by overpowering José Aldo.

Conor McGregor revels in the support his fans give him.

However, Kamaru Usman predicted prior to fighting Masvidal that “the Irish superstar would actually attempt a run at welterweight to face him.”

It seems the Nigerian Nightmare’s prediction comes true. But McGregor would have to clear Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 before he gets ready to gain some weight.
