Kamaru Usman Eyes Fight With Georges St-Pierre And Brutally Mocks Jorge Masvidal
Kamaru Usman would love to defend his UFC welterweight title against Georges St-Pierre next, but he has no desire in facing Jorge Masvidal.
Usman made the first defence of his belt against Colby Covington. He stopped his UFC 245 opponent in the fifth round to defend his title.
And the 'Nigerian Nightmare' is now eyeing a super-fight with St-Pierre, who hasn't fought since November 2017.
"That would be an extremely exciting fight because I think we are the two hybrids of the welterweight division," Usman said about fighting 'GSP'.
"Since the welterweight division has been going on, I think he and I are the two hybrids. When he came on the scene, he could do it all - systematically break guys down to make the fight look easy. I just think that I'm a better level of that.
"I've got the power, I've got the cardio, I've got the strength, I've got the speed. So, I think it's a big, big, big fight, and all due respect to Georges, but I think I finish him," he added.

UFC president Dana White, though, is interested in booking Usman vs. Masvidal, yet the 170lbs king doesn't care about the BMF champion.
"Eh. Who cares?" Usman said about defending his UFC welterweight title against Masvidal.
"Honestly, I'm being honest, if you talk about a guy who is deserving of a title shot, it's Leon Edwards... He's a guy who I know is tough, and I recognize his talents for sure."
Masvidal beat Nate Diaz last month to win the inaugural BMF strap and he appears to be next in line for a shot at UFC gold, but Usman has other plans.
Who should Usman defend his title against next? Let us know.
