Usman believes fight against Khabib would be biggest in UFC history
Kamaru Usman knows if he were to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov, it would be one of the biggest bouts in UFC history, reports mmanews.com.
Both Usman and Nurmagomedov are/were dominant champions and considered two of the best of all time. However, the lightweight champ in Nurmagomedov recently retired, plus he and Usman share a strong relationship, so the odds of the fight ever happening are slim to none.
“It absolutely would be the biggest fight in UFC history. But the problem is, it wouldn’t happen. That’s just hypothetical,” Usman said to TMZ Sports.
“I’ve lost faith in this one as well. I think you have more of a chance of making Kamaru Usman and Georges St-Pierre happen before Kamaru Usman and Khabib Nurmagomedov. That one just won’t happen.
“I don’t think there’s a lot of people in this line saying, ‘We want this guy.’ There’s not a lot of people. More power to Georges. Georges is doing wonderful things, amazing things,” Usman continued.
