Mohammed Usman, have you heard of that name? No this is not Kamaru Usman, this is his lesser known brother. Last Saturday at Fight Night 228 he recorded a victory over Jake Collier and then made some interesting statements.
He claims that whoever compares him to his brother Kamaru has his respect, and he has nothing against it. There have been several brothers who have fought in the UFC, we all know about the Diaz brothers. With the Usman brothers, namely Mohammed Usman, a brilliant career is predicted.
Very physically strong, it's probably their genetics, they have good style as well as speed. He just needs to take his career seriously and experts agree that he will probably be better than Kamaru.
He is happy because people compare him to his brother, he thinks that his brother is one of the greatest ever
“I’ve gotten better and better at honing my emotions, and I feel like a lot of these guys can’t do that.
That’s what just happened in there: His emotions came out and he said some things, I guess to think he was going to get under my skin. But that’s just what I needed to hear, because I knew I won”. “At this point, it’s not a cloud – it’s a blessing for my brother to be able to have done what he’s done in this sport.
For me just to be following in his footsteps and excelling in this sport, it’s such a blessing because if I wasn’t winning, I would not be up here talking to you guys about how much of a blessing this is. I would be going home.
You guys wouldn’t want to talk to me when if I lost. So I’m doing a great job by continuing to win, and that’s what I’m going to keep doing. I’m going to keep winning so you all can keep saying, ‘How good is it that you have a brother that has done so many amazing things and you’re following his lead?’ And I’m going to say it’s a blessing and it’s great and I love it and it’s motivation”.
