Kamaru Usman Unleashes Rant On Jorge Masvidal Slamming 'What He's Become'
Kamaru Usman has claimed that fame has changed Jorge Masvidal and that he's become 'everything he said he wouldn't be'.
The UFC welterweight champion spoke about his rival during UFC 247 on Saturday night and stated fame has changed 'Gamebred'.
"It's kind of funny to me to watch what he's become," 'The Nigerian Nightmare' told reporters per MMA Junkie.
"I've always been this fly, I've always dressed the way I did. It's just that now I have a bigger platform where everybody gets to see some of those things.
"I've always said the same things that I wanted to say. I've always been confident, because that's the way that I train and I believe in myself and my abilities. I've never changed one bit. I tell you what I'm doing to do, I go in there and I get it done."
The 32-year-old explained that the BMF champion has become a 'cliche' fighter.
"It's kind of funny to me to watch what he's become," he added. "It's the same guy, the same journeyman. But now he's become everything that he said he wouldn't be. Everything he fought against, being the cliche, being this and that, he's exactly that guy right now.
"But it is what it is, more power to him. At the end of the day, when I sign on the dotted line I'm going to go in there and take care of business."
Usman also mocked Masvidal for the white and red suit he wore to the UFC 244 press conference as well as his lavish entrance robes.
"He's the guy, remember, that never wanted to do media - ah, he's too good for that, too good for this - but this clown is showing up at fights now with a robe on! This guy's wearing a suit pretending to be Tony Montana [Scarface] now. He's turned into everything that he said he wasn't, that he wouldn't be."
Both men made the news last month when they faced off at a SuperBowl media day.
They came across one another in Miami and traded words as spectators pulled them apart.
A fight could be scheduled as early as July and Masivdal has made it no secret that he wants the welterweight championship.
Who do you think will win when the two welterweights eventually face off?
