Conor McGregor guarantees to ‘smack’ Kamaru Usman as soon as he conquers light-weight once more: ‘It’s mine quickly’

After watching Kamaru Usman end Jorge Masvidal in brutal trend within the UFC 261 predominant occasion, Conor McGregor is now promising to ultimately go after the reigning welterweight champion.

Following the motion on Saturday night time the place Usman capped off the cardboard with a devastating proper hand that put Masvidal down and out, McGregor determined to weigh in on the motion after beforehand taking photographs at “The Nigerian Nightmare” for copying his catchphrases and now supposedly imitating his strikes.

“Usman even copying my photographs now,” McGregor wrote on Twitter. “Am I to combat this man at some stage? I feel so. Can’t be copying my phrases and my photographs and never get a smack for it. I like 170. It’s mine quickly.”

Previous to the occasion, Usman joked that it was a “inexperienced panty” night time each time anyone bought the chance to face him, which was a play on phrases after McGregor touted a “pink panty night time” for his opponents cashing a hefty paycheck after taking up the largest draw within the sport.

Now McGregor is promising his future lies at 170 kilos however first issues first, he has to beat light-weight and that begins along with his rematch in opposition to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July.

“I’m a block at 170 guys,” McGregor stated. “Give me until finish of 12 months at this 155 weight. I’ll get the strap after which I’ll go up once more. After inexperienced fungus panties hahaha ‘cos any one in all these fools can get it’ – Usman.”

McGregor has beforehand talked about going as much as welterweight in his pursuit of a 3rd UFC title after beforehand successful championships at each light-weight and featherweight.

There was even a time a couple of years in the past when McGregor was sizing up then champion Tyron Woodley throughout a weigh-in the place each fighters had been stepping on the dimensions.

After all, McGregor presently sports activities a 2-1 report at welterweight within the UFC after splitting a pair of fights with Nate Diaz together with a win over Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone so he doesn’t have a complete lot of expertise within the division.

For his half, Usman was requested about presumably going through McGregor previous to his knockout in opposition to Masvidal and he scoffed at the concept that the Irish celebrity would truly try a run at welterweight to face him.

“The considered preventing guys like that’s simply to this point out of my spectrum, out of my thoughts, it’s simply not possible,” Usman informed MMA Combating forward of UFC 261. “It’s not one thing they might even be curious about. On the finish of the day, I wish to assume they’ve slightly little bit of sanity, that they’re trustworthy with themselves as properly. I don’t assume that’s one thing even when I did supply them that.

“I’ve supplied Conor the combat earlier than. Earlier than Masvidal, I sat right here and stated Conor, you talked all this, you’re tweeting this, you’re typing this, and also you received’t point out my title however you’re typing all these things about me, if you would like the title shot, you’ve bought it. Let’s go. Let’s do it. I bought no response. Nothing.”

There’s little doubt that Usman can be an awesome favourite in opposition to McGregor if the combat ever occurred but it surely appears unlikely to happen.

UFC president Dana White has beforehand shot down McGregor going through different welterweights like Masvidal so it appears unlikely he’d soar on the probability to e book probably the most worthwhile fighter on the roster in opposition to arguably the best fighter to ever compete at 170 kilos.
