Kamaru Usman believes he can beat Leon Edwards in their fourth fight. Many believe that such a match will happen, given that it is now 2-1 in favor of Edwards. Kamaru Usman thinks that he still has a lot to show, and wants to give the final word.

“I still felt like like there wasn’t finality to the fight,” Usman told ESPN, as quoted by mmafighting.com “The rest of the world kinda still feels like that but props to him. Right now he has that belt and we have to respect that, but I need finality.

My thing is I need finality. I need you to show me you are better than me from start to finish. Maybe it’s just me selfishly that I need to feel that. If you can’t show me that, you’re not better than me. I just can’t accept that”.

Usman is aware that Edwards is a good opponent, but he believes that he can show his full potential in the fight against him. Now it is just necessary for him to get another chance for it. “Of course, he did what he needed to do to get the win and he did it, so he’s the champion right now and I respect that,” Usman said.

“But I know where I’m at and the level which I still function and where I can. I’m still growing in the sport. As crazy as it is to say, I’m still growing in the sport. So, I’m excited to see what’s next.

I think Leon needs to definitely keep defending that belt and myself, I’m No. 1 in the world in that division,” Usman said. “I think it’s who’s No. 2? Colby [Covington]. They’re gonna fight and No.

3 is Khamzat [Chimaev]. So, I think a fight with myself and Khamzat, boom. And if he (Edwards) keeps winning, I think that’s the fourth fight, 100 percent”.
