Conor McGregor, known for his provocative statements, recently took aim at several MMA figures during a livestream. Among his targets was Kamaru Usman, the former UFC welterweight champion. McGregor’s derogatory comments didn’t sit well with Usman, who responded with both dignity and assertiveness.

During the live stream, McGregor dismissed Usman, calling him a “bum.” Usman, in turn, addressed McGregor’s lack of respect within the sport. He emphasized that despite McGregor’s legal troubles and setbacks, he never kicked him while he was down. Usman even revealed that he had offered McGregor two opportunities to fight for the championship when he was the reigning champion.

Kamaru Usman’s Response:

In an episode of the Pound 4 Pound podcast, Kamaru Usman expressed his disappointment with McGregor’s remarks. He highlighted the importance of respect in MMA and reminded McGregor that the sport thrives on mutual admiration. Usman’s words carried weight, especially considering his dominant reign as welterweight champion.

”You can’t say [I’m a bum], Conor. I didn’t kick him while he was down. He’s had run-ins with the law, he’s had back-to-back incidents and situations but you never heard me sit there and kick the man while he was down. There needs to be some level of respect here, because, at the end of the day, that’s what this sport is all about.”

A Potential Showdown With Conor McGregor?

While a direct clash between Usman and McGregor remains uncertain, fans can’t help but speculate. McGregor is set to face Michael Chandler at UFC 303, while Usman recently suffered a loss to Khamzat Chimaev. Whether they’ll meet inside the octagon or continue their war of words, the tension between these two fighters adds intrigue to the MMA landscape.

Kamaru Usman’s response to Conor McGregor’s verbal attacks reflects the essence of respect in the sport. As fans eagerly await UFC 303, the possibility of a showdown between these fierce competitors remains tantalizing. This fight will be a treat for all Combat Sports fans and will be one of the biggest buts of this decade if it materializes.
