It could be expected that Conor McGregor’s negative comment on Kamaru Usman’s performance against Jorge Masvidal would not go unanswered on the other hand. Unlike the MMA community, which expressed enthusiasm for the Nigerian's performance, McGregor accused him of copying his punches, announcing his arrival for the welterweight title.
While Usman could enjoy his performance and title defense, as well as the continuation of an incredible winning streak, he chose to respond to the Irishman. Which is actually not a bad decision on the marketing side. He did this by referring to the aforementioned accusation of copying his punches, although it is really difficult to assess what could have been the original, that is, the unique Conor, in the last direct with which Usman ended the fight.
"Except when I touch you at 170, they go out. They don’t even go out at 155 anymore for you. I finish people. You get finished." - Usman wrote, and he truly improved his lethality by thus winning three of the four defending titles with a break.
This kind of response McGregor waited so that he could continue his attack in a much fiercer tone than the first announcement. The first hard words fell immediately. "Relax there, carbuncles. You big spotty back pox. You were ringside last time I fought at 170.
40 seconds is all it took. Why did you reschedule Burns' fight ?" "What was the reason, that was never given to the public, why that already signed fight was then rescheduled?", McGregor asked, then adding his guess between the lines: "Never in all my time in this business, which is long before all of these fucking bums, have I ever seen a signed fight gets rescheduled with no reason given whatsoever.
So said fighter can recover from “undisclosed injuries”. Excuse me what? The fight is signed/sealed/tix sold."
However, he confirmed his opinion with the third "tweet" in a row, trying to call Usman a steroid user, alluding to how he postponed the mentioned fight because he did not manage to get rid of them.
"Fu*k these juice heads anyway, I don’t give a bollox. I’m just calling it as it is. I have the biggest balls in Ireland with two lump hammers attached to me elbows." "Send me in and I’ll pop that big pimple.
Get 3 belts to go with my 3 commas." Usman had a response, stating that the fight against him had already been offered to McGregor, to which he did not react. "I offered you the fight and you went missing. Let’s stay humble young man.
I already took your pride. Don’t make me take your whiskey too" We can’t currently assess whether this debate will go to some higher level, but knowing what McGregor’s ambitions are, we can be sure he would be willing to go on a hunt for a third belt, no matter what his current chances are against a Usman-quality fighter.
If he succeeds in that, he would achieve something that no one has ever come close to. As for the UFC, it would be no problem for them to provide McGregor with that opportunity.
