But 'The Nigerian Nightmare' has vowed to "never" fight his "brother" as well as the UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.

"I would never fight Khabib - that's my brother," Usman explained. "It's just a mutual respect. I don't see myself ever fighting Khabib.

"I don't see myself ever fighting Israel, even though a lot of people have hinted toward it. I don't see myself fighting him.

"Having two belts in Nigeria is better than just having one guy hold two belts. There's no desire there. That's my guy. He's special."

published at5 months ago

Usman last fought at UFC 245, when he defended his title against Colby Covington. He's currently sidelined with a ligament strain in his wrist but he's plotting his Octagon return.

"We've talked," he added. "I'll be ready. Give me a month and let this thing heal up. I can make a fist now. I'm cracking.

"They put out the guys, and let's be honest, if you look at the division, I've beaten almost everybody there in the top 10. It's a matter of who they really want, what's next. Dana (White) said they really want Jorge. Jorge is the next guy."

BMF champion Masvidal appears to be the frontrunner to face Usman next, with the likes of Conor McGregor and even Georges St-Pierre touted as potential opponents.
