He had previously been expected to fight Masvidal, but the No. 2 ranked welterweight fighter has instead expressed interest in a rematch with Nate Diaz recently.Usman said if Masvidal won’t fight him, he’ll ask the UFC for a matchup against McGregor, who defeated Donald Cerrone in a welterweight bout in January.“This is what I have to say: Both [McGregor and Masvidal],” Usman said. “Both guys are champions of Twitter, talking s— on Twitter. In the history [of MMA], who has ever said no to a title shot? I’m that guy. I’m the boogeyman who these guys are saying no to a title shot against. And they better remain quiet.“Jorge Masvidal, you had an opportunity on April 18, May 9, June and now July. You want to fight Nate – a fight that wasn’t even competitive. And Conor, you said you wanted to be the king of the 170-pound division. Now you’re quiet. So you know what? Just remain quiet. I’ve given both of you a shot, and none of you have taken it.”Usman added that he would be willing to agree to keep the fight as a stand-up contest for the first two rounds of the five in order to entice McGregor. “I will sign a contract with Conor McGregor. We’ll put it in the contract: First or second round, I won’t take you down,” said Usman. “Yeah, if I want you down, there’s no ifs, ands or buts about it. But if I want to stand up with you, I will. Am I going to try to knock Conor McGregor out? Absolutely. I’m going to try to knock his head off his F-ing shoulders.”The 33-year-old Usman defeated Colby Covington in December for his first successful title defence since taking the belt from Tyron Woodley last March.Tags: Challenges’Conor McGregorJorge MasvidalKamaru UsmanTitle DefenseUFCWelterweight
