Kamaru Usman tells TMZ Sports … he was all set to fight Jorge Masvidal in July — until the coronavirus killed those plans. But he’s still ready to hand out another ass-whooping, stat!
So, while the UFC tries to line up the next fight for the UFC welterweight champ — he’s talking mad trash to Masvidal, Colby Covington and of course … Conor McGregor.
First … Masvidal.
“Honestly, if I’m being honest, do I believe that he deserves the fight next? No, I don’t think that he deserves the fight. But at the same time, he’s got the hype right now.”
“He seriously thinks he’s a superstar. He’s talking about how I’m the most famous fighter, I’m more famous than Conor and this and that. You are drinking your own Kool-Aid right now. He forgets that literally less than a year ago or two years ago he was just ‘Journeyman George.'”
“Now you lost some weight, did a little Spanish reality show and came back and now he thinks he’s just Jacques Cousteau or something. My man, relax!”
Next … Colby.
Remember, Kamaru beat Colby’s ass back at UFC 245 in December. Covington wants a rematch.
“Colby I’ll be more than happy to put another cannon to your face. Easy as that.”
“I’d be crazy if I said I didn’t want that fight because Conor is one of those guys that’s transcended the sport.”
“And of course, I think people would love to see me go in there and spank him any way that I want. So, that’s a fight that I always want.”
“So, if Conor’s feeling froggy that fight could happen anytime. So, that’s a wild card right there, that could happen any time. If he’s feeling froggy, if he wakes up on the right side of the bed and is like ‘You know what? I want to get my ass beat today!’ … that fight could happen any time.”
Kamaru wraps up with a special message to Colby and Jorge … you don’t wanna miss that.
