Kamaru Usman Successful title defense With UFC 258. He has “cleaned up” the department and hasn’t lost for nearly a decade, so now we’re moving on to a conversation about whether he can make history.

“Rashad’s victory Ultimate Fighter- I did that, “he said. ESPN Transcription via MMA Fighting). “Rashad is the UFC Champion — I did. Coach Rashad Ultimate fighter And now I’m in a position to do that. Rashad is inducted into the Hall of Fame. I said to him, “Hey, Big Bro, I’m coming! I’m trying to get that jacket too.” So how crazy is it? It’s a kind of (question), do I have the choice to do it, yes or no? For that reason alone, it’s almost yes to me. ”

Usman seems happy to be able to be charitably described as a “conversion” or perhaps as an intermission before something more dramatic. Will he be promoted to middleweight and willing to follow in the footsteps of fighters like GSP?

If you say, “I don’t want to have one,” absolutely. I will entertain the idea. But for now, I never enjoy standing up to fight Izzy. That’s not what I’m interested in. As I said over and over again, it’s better to have two Africans with belts than one African with two belts. And there will be three Africans with four belts after March, as you know. So it’s a good time to be African. Good time. “
