Usman was, of course too busy celebrating his own victory to respond immediately, but when he did, the welterweight champion dismissed “Notorious,” even noting that McGregor’s famed knockout power has not yielded the same results as of late.
Never a man to take things quietly, McGregor went off on the champion, suggesting Usman takes PEDS and calling for the UFC to give him a crack at the 170 title.

This looks extremely safe.
McGregor didn’t just beef with Usman this weekend, he also got into a skirmish Poirier and Gaethje, even denying Poirier’s request to have their third fight happen at welterweight. He also used Weidman’s horrific injury as a pretext to entirely dismiss the low calf kick, you know, the thing that he admits worked him over in his rematch with Poirier. Totally normal one for Conor this weekend.
This is not a good curse.
Such cleverness on both sides.

I rarely say this but McGregor is right, Usman did steal that combo from him. Anyone who is truly a student of the game knows Conor McGregor invented the lead hook-rear straight combo in 2014. Before that, fist fights were restricted to one punch aside from each man until the other one gave up.
Thanks for reading and see y’all tomorrow.
