UFC President Dana White saying one thing that’s true and in some ways rational is entrance web page information as of late, together with his latest admission that former two-division champion, Conor McGregor, shouldn’t be eligible to compete for the 170-pound title.
That ought to come as no shock when you think about that “Infamous” has not overwhelmed a Prime 5 welterweight and has no actual declare to the strap held by Kamaru Usman, however when you may promote as many pay-per-view (PPV) buys as McGregor, the principles don’t at all times apply.
“Pay attention, the following title combat for Usman goes to be certainly one of these guys: it’s gonna be Colby [Covington], [Jorge] Masvidal, [Leon] Edwards,” White instructed ESPN on Wednesday. “It’s going to be a kind of guys. It’s not gonna be Conor McGregor.”
White as soon as stated that McGregor was too small to combat welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal and Usman is even bigger than “Gamebred,” and a way more explosive wrestler, evidenced by his 25-minute thumping of Tyron Woodley at UFC 235 again in 2019.
That leaves the power-punching Irishman with a choice to make concerning his preventing future. Await the light-weight winner of Justin Gaethje vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov, or stick round at 170 kilos for extra enjoyable fights just like the one he loved in opposition to Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone.
