Kamaru Usman Brutally Responds To Conor McGregor's Call Out
Kamaru Usman has sent a damning message to Conor McGregor after he expressed his interest of fighting the UFC welterweight champion.
McGregor returns to the Octagon at UFC 246 when he faces Donald Cerrone, but he has set his sights on UFC gold in the form of the lightweight and welterweight titles.
And the 170lbs king has responded to McGregor's intentions by issuing him a message on social media.
"My man @TheNotoriousMMA please just go in there and take your L from cowboy. Don't even dream of this WW strap because that dream can turn into an Nightmare fast," Usman wrote on Twitter.

McGregor has fought at welterweight twice in his career, both occasions against Nate Diaz where he went 1-1.

The 31-year-old will make his highly anticipated comeback at welterweight on January 18 as he guns for a third UFC title.
Usman, meanwhile, most recently defended his belt against Colby Covington at UFC 245 in December and he's eyeing a super-fight with Georges St-Pierre.
"Think about that fight. Georges St-Pierre has the record, I'm coming for the record and in order for me to break the record, I fight him for the record," Usman explain. "I can't think of a better way to get that record than to fight somebody like Georges.
"With all due respect, I've got a lot of respect for Georges. He's the guy I watched coming into the sport. That's a fight that a lot of guys dream of. Not just we're going to get paid but I dream of that fight as a competitor. Competing against one of the best to ever do it. I think it would be a tremendous fight."
