Kamaru Usman (14-1 MMA, 9-0 UFC) is all happy as he is getting his opportunity to fight the welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in a title bout at UFC 235, March 2. This is the first time he is fighting for the welterweight title.
Kamaru Usman got this opportunity by winning a one-sided fight against RDA last June. With that win, he gained appreciation from the UFC President Dana White.
Recently, he talked to Ariel Helwani where Ariel asked him questions regarding his training camp and how he went from being hated by Dana White to become one of his favourite fighters.He answered the questions by saying ” I am feeling good, you know. Feel just like any other camp.”
Kamaru Usman also said that he genuinely doesn’t like Colby Covington. On being asked by Ariel, are you happy seeing Colby frustrated?
Kamaru Usman said, “I saw snippet of Colby actually on the show, I didn’t really watch it. It was sounded like he was crying, you know. I really, his voice was trembling. At one point of the show, he was like Dana White lied to me( Kamaru enacted that in a trembling voice).“
He also added, “He had his opportunity, he passed on it.”
