After defeating Gilbert Burns in Las Vegas, Kamaru Usman smashed Georges St. Pierre’s UFC record for straight welterweight victories, then called out Jorge Masvidal for a rematch:
“I’ll give you a whole training camp, and this time I will stop him. I promise you.”
“That fight – he had a built-in excuse, that’s the only reason he took that fight, we tried to make that fight twice before he said ‘No’. He’s been saying no,” Usman told reporters.
“The only reason he took that fight on Fight Island is because there was a built-in excuse. He was training the whole time! But he said, ‘Oh, I only had six days’ notice. So that’s why that went that way.’ Well, guess what – I’ll give you a whole training camp, and this time I will stop him. I promise you.
