UFC President Dana White believes that welterweight champion Kamaru Usman will eventually participate in the greatest debate in MMA history.
Usman will protect his title from the surge of candidates Gilbert Burns At the UFC258 main event this weekend.
Talk to TMZ sports, White said it was a must-see for fight fans.
“In terms of style, this fight is great,” White said. “I’ve been waiting for this fight for a long time. It was supposed to happen earlier, but I can’t wait because it’s Saturday. As many know, Usman [Georges St-Pierre] If the UFC wins 12 in a row, if he wins this weekend, he will break the GSP record at 13. He has won 16 games in a row. This guy hasn’t lost for seven years. He hasn’t lost since 2013.
“He’s playing against his former teammate, Burns,” White continued. “”[Burns is] Multiple Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champions. This guy is also welterweight and undefeated, with a 74 percent finish rate. This fight is a lot of fun. The only thing we don’t know is who was better at the gym when they were training together.
“Every weekend I’ll tell you why you have to see this and why you have to see it. Have got To see this fight on Saturday. “
White went on to suggest that if Usman defeated Burns, he would be on his way to GOAT status in MMA.
“Usman is one of those quiet murderers, a man,” White said. “This guy doesn’t hit his boobs. He doesn’t behave like a madman. He bows, works hard, and sees what creeps on us. He’s on GSP. I’m trying to break the record. If he can get over Gilbert Burns on Saturday night, it’s going to be a tough fight, he’s just a man who keeps being sharpened, and one day we’re all awake. Will go “Oh awesome” and we all talk about this guy’s GOAT status. “
