The UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman has responded to Conor McGregor after McGregor said during a Twitter Q&A that he would "spark" Usman — this and much more on Tuesday's social media roundup.
Kamaru Usman responds to Conor McGregor
Conor McGregor hosted a Twitter Q&A on Sunday night where he answered a lot of his fans' questions and he gave a lot of controversial answers.
One question which the former two-division UFC champion was asked was "what's it like to spark people unconscious in three different weight divisions?"
McGregor answered in typical McGregor fashion by listing his UFC records and saying if he was to fight Kamaru Usman for the welterweight belt he would "spark" him too.
See McGregor's full response below.
Tremendous! I love this record! I fight for the 170lb title I will spark him too.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) August 16, 2021
That would be fastest ko in ufc title fight (13 seconds)
Most knockdowns in ufc title fight (5)
And then another KO in a ufc title fight.
3 title fights. 3 ko’s. 3 new records.
It’s right there! https://t.co/80iI59klPN
Usman very quickly responded to McGregor's tweet.
See what Usman had to say below.
Spark who?? You must be talking about that pipe you’ve been smoking. Unlike you, if I’m gonna talk shit ill @ U. Now be quiet before I call Poirier or Khabib or Diaz to finish you again -- #P4P ---- https://t.co/2jSlVOkRXM— KAMARU USMAN (@USMAN84kg) August 16, 2021
Going off of how good Usman has looked recently and also how poor McGregor's results have been recently, the fight should not even be considered.
However, this is Conor McGregor and he basically gets any fight he wants and I am sure that Usman would not turn down the big payday which he would get if he fought McGregor.
Do you think that Usman would make easy work of McGregor or do you think that McGregor could shock the world if this fight was made?
