Kamaru Usman wants to go all “Deliverance” on Jorge Masvidal at UFC 249 — saying he wants the fans to hear Masivdal “squeal like the pig that he is.”
Both Kamaru and Jorge have said they’re down to step up and fight in the main event at UFC 249 in April — after Khabib Nurmagomedov revealed that he’s stuck in Russia and likely won’t be able to fight Tony Ferguson.
Masvidal has promised to “cut off” Usman’s head if they do scrap — but Kamaru, the reigning UFC welterweight champ, says he ain’t afraid.
In fact, Usman says he LOVES the fact there will likely be no fans allowed at UFC 249 (due to the COVID-19 pandemic) … because he wants the fans to hear all of the sounds of combat.
“I want you guys to hear him squeal, squeal like a pig, like the little bitch that he is,” Usman says.
“The weird sounds that he’s gonna make once I’m elbowing and slicing up his face, once I’m dropping hammers on his face. I want you guys to hear that.”
“Nobody in the stands no fans to cheer him on so he feels like he’s somebody. nobody, just me and him.”
“That’s why I said I’ll take that fight. I haven’t been training but I’ll take the fight because I wanted you guys to hear what I do to this guy inside.”
No word yet from Dana White on what will ultimately happen with UFC 249 — he’s adamant the show will go on — but this seems like a pretty solid option.
