Usman: I turn their dreams to nightmares

UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman took part in the UFC 251 virtual media day on Thursday, and talked about his fight Saturday night vs. BMF Jorge Masvidal.

“He’s the best out of each and every one of [my past opponents],” said Usman as transcribed by Danny Segura for MMA Junkie. “He’s the best. He’s the next guy in front of me. He’s the toughest guy in front of me, so I don’t take him lightly. I’m going out there with all my thoughts, the thought that he’s the best opponent that I have faced today, and I have to go out there and treat him accordingly.”

“Can you sell s*** to the fans? The fans know if you have someone that’s worthy as a challenger. The fact that Jorge had such an amazing year in 2019 puts him into that category to where he’s the next biggest challenge for me. I’m excited. I can’t wait. I think this is the fight that people wanted, and it’s the fight that people are getting.”

“At the end of the day, Masvidal is the biggest, baddest opponent that I have ever faced up to this date. They’re supposed to make a big deal out of that because he’s no slouch. I know that he’s tough. I know that he presents a different challenge, but that's my job. That’s why I’m a champion. That’s why I’m on top.

“We’ve seen previously, my previous opponent said that he was going to leave me out on a stretcher just like Masvidal. He said that they will leave me in a pool of my own blood and that they would carry me out on a stretcher. My opponent before that, Tyron Woodley, said if it came to wrestling, he’d kick my ass. If it came to jiu-jitsu, he’d break my arm. If it came to striking, he’d knock me out. And we saw how all that turned out. So you know, that’s the story they say just to try to build themselves up and hype themselves up. But very quickly, when they step in there, their dreams of being champion turn into nightmares quickly.”

and I agree with Ali, aka the best manager in the history of MMA:

I mean, in all seriousness..  If Usman doesnt break Colby's jaw, Colby is champ right now.  Hell even with the broken jaw he was winning...

In your dreams, QQ more noob. Usman dismantled Colby! Usman beat him so badly, Colby had to resort to faking an eye poke after the most significant strike of the fight, which got the ref to give him a time out. Usman STILL went on to beat him anyways in devestating TKO fashion, causing Colby to flee the arena.

So literally the fight was 2 round a peice, and Colby was winning the 5th..  

Im not even a Colby fan.  It is what it is..

He didnt get a time out,Marty wouldnt back up and Goddard cucked. 

You know who DID get a time out after a liver shot? Go ahead, take a guess.

If your dream is watching an exciting fight hes 100% correct 

I thought Usman was going to talk about MMA fans.

Ya some of my worst nightmares are when I'm so tired I can't wake up and then even when I think I'm awake I'm still dreaming.
