In response to Conor McGregor's confidence, Kamaru Usman made an immediate warning for the former heavyweight champion .
During a recent fan interaction on Twitter when asked about what it feels like to be the first fighter to knock out an opponent in the Featherweight, Lightweight, and Welterweight divisions, Conor listed more of his accomplishments and affirmed:
"Tremendous! I love this record! I fight for the 170lb title I will spark him (the champion) too." - Conor was confident speaking of his achievements.
"That would be fastest ko in ufc title fight (13 seconds). Most knockdowns in ufc title fight (5). And then another KO in a ufc title fight. 3 title fights. 3 ko’s. 3 new records. It’s right there!"
Conor McGregor is always proud of his ability to knock down and defeat his opponents.
Kamaru Usman, the defending UFC welterweight champion, was immediately enraged by this remark. Usman couldn't help but respond when Conor expressed confidence in his ability to fight for the title and got the third knockout.
“Spark who?? You must be talking about that pipe you’ve been smoking. Unlike you, if I’m gonna talk s*** I’ll @ you. Now be quiet before I call Poirier or Khabib or Diaz to finish you again.” Usman responded.
Kamaru Usman took Conor down straightaway hearing someone hinting at his name.
When the Nigerian boxer has the best winning streak in welterweight, with two knockouts in a row, Kamaru Usman's confidence is completely justified.
Gilbert Burns and Jorge Masvidal, Usman's two most recent defeats, have both experienced the power of his punches, and the champion's skills are showing clear progress with each match.
On November 7, Kamaru Usman will face Colby Covington in a rematch at UFC 268 to determine the next welterweight champion.
