Kamaru Usman was in a winning spirit last night as he beat Gilbert Burns in the third round through a TKO victory with Herb Dean stepping in to protect Burns from any more damage.
Feeling like he could take on the entire world, Usman was speaking after the fight and immediately called out his next opponent which will be a rematch with a rival.
Jorge Masvidal is the fighter Kamaru wants to face next after defeating the Gamebred fighter at UFC 251. Usman believes that Masvidal only fought him at UFC 251 because he picked the fight up at six days notice and had a built in excuse.
He is now willing to give him a full training camp but guaranteed that Masvidal would not accept the offer when speaking with Joe Rogan.
“We got this little street thug calling himself Jesus, we tried to make that fight several times. We tried to make that fight, but he kept backing out.
“The only reason this man took the fight is because it was on six days notice and he had a built-in excuse. And he’s still running his mouth, talking about he broke my nose and stepping in on six days, if he gets three weeks he’s going to do something. Guess what? It’s not done.
“I will give you a whole training camp, I guarantee you, you won’t sign on that dotted line. If you’re going to talk, you got to step in here and see me.”
