Kamaru Usman Accused Of Imitating Conor McGregor And Branded A 'Fan Boy' In Video

Kamaru Usman has been accused of copying Conor McGregor in his UFC career as one fan has branded him a 'fan boy' in a video.

McGregor and Usman have been involved in a war of words after the 'Nigerian Nightmare' defeated Jorge Masvidal at UFC 261 on Saturday.

During McGregor's Twitter rant, one MMA fan responded with a clip showing the eerily similar McGregor-esque lines that Usman has said in his career.

Footage used in the video includes when McGregor called out Floyd Mayweather over his reading skills and also when he praised Dustin Poirier as a fighter.

Juxtaposing the aforementioned clips is footage of Usman delivering similar lines during different scenarios.

The future UFC Hall of Famer called on his Deliveroo driver to "hurry the f**k up with my dinner" as fans posted hilarious responses on social media.

Following his victory over Masvidal on the weekend, Usman declared that he is the pound-for-pound "best fighter on the planet."

The Nigerian-American star said: "That's up to them, that's not up to me.

"I just need to continue to do what I do and that's dominate every individual. That's my last three opponents and I've finished all three of them. I don't worry about that. I take it a fight at a time.

"If people want to consider me the best, then they can. But as of right now, I do believe that right now I'm pound-for-pound, I am the best fighter on the planet."
