UFC Champion Kamaru Usman Responds To Conor McGregor Teasing A Move To Welterweight

UFC Champion Kamaru Usman Responds To Conor McGregor Teasing A Move To Welterweight

UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman has responded to Conor McGregor teasing a move to the 170lbs division.

McGregor pulled no punches during a scathing Twitter rant as he aimed digs at all of his UFC rivals while hinting at a move up in weight.

The Irishman has his eyes on the lightweight crown before targeting the welterweight division.

On Twitter, he wrote: "After this division demolition job. It is 170lbs."

But McGregor's welterweight plan does not sit well with current welterweight king Usman, who hit back at his claim.

"You must be drunk texting again lol. Lay off that proper whisky bitch. #YoullDoNothin," he replied.

published at6 months ago

Usman previously talked up a clash against McGregor and insists it wouldn't end well for the former UFC double champion.

"You can't take anything away from Conor. He has put himself in that status to be that guy. But can you imagine me fighting Conor? Like that would not be fair. It would not be fair," 'The Nigerian Nightmare' explained.

"I give everyone has a puncher's chance. But it would not be fair."

He added: "You saw what Khabib did to him at 155. Now imagine doing that to me at 170. Now I am not just gonna take him down. I am gonna march forward, I am gonna hit this guy, I am gonna beat on him, I am gonna take him down. I would do some bad things to Conor. It's not that I don't like the guy. I mean Conor is Conor."

McGregor, of course, has two wins at welterweight in the form of victories over Nate Diaz and Donald Cerrone.

No fighter in UFC history has captured titles in three separate weight classes. Will McGregor be the first man to achieve this UFC record?
