Kamaru Usman is coming off of a dominant performance over Rafael Dos Anjos to beat him via a unanimous decision in the welterweight main event of The Ultimate Fighter 28 Finale on Friday at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
With that win, he has also impressed Dana White and UFC president has said that he wants to see Usman fight Woodley next. He recently also appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show and said that UFC is using him as a leverage against both Covington and Woodley who have yet to have agreed to fight each other.
However, it looks like Usman has already started beefing with top welterweight contender Colby Covington as he uploaded a video on his twitter account which showed both fighters backstage at some arena and Usman calling out and trash talking Covington who pretended to be using his cell phone ignoring all kinds of advances from ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’.

Usman said: ” He[Covington] don’t want no smoke standing next to me……..He’s staring at the phone… look down, good boy [in teasing tone]……He only talk on Twitter, you know we talking personal…..You just look down.”
“Yeah, he’s talking to everybody else[when Covington starts talking to some other person]. I am right here, you can talk on Twitter, right? I am standing right here. Talk to me face to face, I am standing in front of you.”
“Talk!! that’s what I thought.”
What did you think of this video of Usman confronting Covington?
