Kamaru Usman is not keen on a showdown with Conor McGregor. The welterweight champ wants Conor to prove his worthiness to contend for the title.
Previously, Conor pointed out how Usman tends to copy his phrases. Moreover, he took to Twitter to showcase the similarity between his striking and that of the Nigerian. Kamaru won via KO against Jorge Masvidal at UFC 261.
“I mean, imagine what I would do to him. I might take his life in there”. Usman insists that Conor is not even dominating at lightweight anymore. As such, he predicts that ‘The Notorious’ would get destroyed at welterweight.
Except when I touch you at 170, they go out. They don’t even go out at 155 anymore for you. I finish people. You get finished. https://t.co/URd8wTHvyZ

Moreover, Usman feels that Conor is doing it all for show. “Conor and his little posse, they’re the king of clout chasers,” Usman said. Additionally, Usman feels that McGregor is only doing this in an attempt to draw more attention towards his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.
Furthermore, Usman will most likely be making a fifth title defense against Colby Covington later this year. It will be a rematch of their UFC 245 bout. The last time around, Kamaru was victorious after a fifth-round KO/TKO.

Will Kamaru Usman Entertain McGregor?
Kamaru Usman is well aware that the Irishman is known for calling out people. He also knows that nothing serious materializes more often than not, and eventually, the matter fizzles out. This time, however, Conor seems too serious to let it go.
Whilst everyone accepts that ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ would annihilate Conor, the fight itself seems unlikely to take place. Moreover, the two fighters have a busy situation for the visible future. Conor is eyeing a fight with Manny Pacquiao following his third fight with Poirier.
Similarly, Kamaru is preparing for his rematch with Colby Covington. After that, he might consider a fight with Leon Edwards, provided he wins against Nate Diaz. However, Usman has no real challenge as he’s already beaten the best fighters in the division.
Hence, Dana White might get a few ideas about a possible Conor-Usman fight. While it is certainly possible, it will require both fighters to win their upcoming bouts first. The fight, if it happens, will potentially be one of the biggest fights of the year.
