Conor McGregor Calls Out Kamaru Usman, Blasts Him For ‘Copying My Shots’

Conor McGregor called out Kamaru Usman after his victory over Jorge Masvidal - and slammed the UFC welterweight champion for "copying my words and shots."

'The Notorious' is in training for his July trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier. But he was clearly watching as Usman knocked out Masvidal with a pulverising straight right hand, then even trolled his defeated opponent in the post-fight press conference.

"Usman even copying my shots now. Am I to fight this guy at some stage? I think so," McGregor announced via Twitter, alongside a video of him throwing straight punches vs Poirier.

"Can't be copying my words and my shots and not get a smack for it. I like 170lb. It's mine soon."

Last week Usman said he would give two-weight UFC champion McGregor a "savage beating" if they should ever meet in the Octagon - but claimed 'The Notorious' did not want the fight.

"Conor knows he doesn't want those problems," Usman told TMZ. "I've offered him a title fight... Conor, you have the shot if you want it.

"Conor doesn't want it, you know? At the end of the day, he won't say my name, as well. He was silent."

Well, McGregor has definitely said Usman's name now. 'The Nigerian Nightmare' is one of the most dominant champions in the UFC right now, as he showed with his second conclusive win over Masvidal in Florida this weekend.

He's also the naturally bigger fighter, as he's absolutely at home at 170lb. McGregor has fought up at welterweight, but won his world titles at featherweight, then lightweight.

However in a follow-up tweet, the Irishman insisted that 170lb was a good weight for him.

"I'm a block at 170lb guys," said McGregor. "Give me till end of year at this 155lb weight.

"I'll get the strap and then I'll go up again. After green fungus panties hahaha 'cos any one of these fools can get it' - Usman."

Can McGregor really regain his UFC championship at lightweight, then move up to challenge Usman at welterweight?
