Another huge fight happening in the Welterweight division in the near future is Stephen Thompson vs. Darren Till. The UFC Liverpool main event is considered to be a title eliminator by many fans but Usman is not impressed.

Usman feels that UFC is favouring Darren Till with the matchmaking and opened up about the same during a recent interview.

“It’s not hard to figure out on my part because I’m the guy who knows what’s in front of him. I know who doesn’t want to fight me and why they don’t want to fight me. I know what the UFC is thinking from a marketing standpoint and where they want to place certain guys. I get that. I got it. They gave Darren Till the bigger name, the more favorable stylistic matchup for him, which I still don’t think it is all that favourable,” Usman said. (via MMA Nytt)

His prediction for UFC Liverpool

Usman also went on to give his prediction for the UFC Liverpool main event and said that Stephen Thompson could surprise everyone.

“Not just because I like “Wonderboy” and me and him are cool, but I said it before, I think that’s a far more difficult puzzle to solve than anybody else in the division. You can just look at his body of work and know that’s not an easy guy to fight. Everyone is kind of writing him off cause everyone is thinking that this whole façade that Till’s got going is really going to overwhelm “Wonderboy”. I believe “Wonderboy” is going to go in there and take care of him,” he added.

Usman is currently holding a professional record of 12-1 and will be headlining UFC Chile this weekend.
