Kamaru Usman to McGregor: “I will hurt him a lot. I think we would never see him again in MMA”

UFC middleweight champion says Conor McGregor has no idea what it would be up to, but admits that if he stays in the division and beats tough rivals, a duel could happen.

Current UFC Middleweight Champion, Kamaru Usman did not take seriously Conor McGregor’s statement that he would be interested in competing for the belt to become the only fighter in history to win three UFC belts. In an interview with MMA Fighting, Usman made it clear that he believes a confrontation with McGregor would be a mistake that could have harsh consequences for the Notorious.

“This fight would be a mistake. Alright, anything can happen in a fight. But being realistic, it’s a tremendous mistake. I think I would hurt him a lot, really. Everyone saw what Khabib did to him. Conor had to be away for a while after that fight. Imagine what he would look like if he faced me. I don’t think we would ever see him again in this sport.”

Still in 2019, McGregor said on his website, “The Mac Life“, that he would be interested in getting into the middleweight, and praised the fight between Usman and Colby Covington at UFC 245.

He said: “I enjoyed the UFC 245 middleweight belt fight. I liked what I saw from Usman and Colby. I am open to anything in this category.”

Asked if the Irishman settled into the category, and if we could see a duel between them, Kamaru Usman said that McGregor would have to defeat some strong names in the division to become a possible opponent for him to defend his belt. .

“Conor has no idea. But, of course, if he went up to middleweight and beat someone well-ranked, proving he could withstand into that category, then, yes, I’d be excited to do that fight. ”
