McGregor and Poirier seem to have agreed to continue the battle in the middle of the Octagon for the trilogy battle.
The animosity between Conor McGregor and Kamaru Usman
The rivalry between Conor McGregor and Kamaru Usman has been going on for over a year. Before returning to Donald Cerrone and the UFC last January, McGregor wore Usman’s jockstrap fighting style. Hooray. I accused him of being there.
Kamaru Usman replied to McGregor, He is worse than Habib Nurmagomedov humiliating him.
After occasional back and forth, the duo recently went to war on social media. McGregor claimed that Usman was copying his batting slogan and technique. He could also abdicate from Usman. I was interested in returning to the welterweight division where I could.
In response, the welterweight champion claimed that McGregor had turned down the fight with him. Later, The Notorious accused Kamaru Usman of taking steroids.
According to UFC President Dana White, Kamaru Usman is likely to face Colby Covington in the next match.The two played in December 2019 and Usman won the fifth round of TKO.
