UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman has revealed that he has not intentions of fighting his fellow Nigerian Israel Adesanya in the UFC.
Kamaru Usman was engaged in an interview with ESPN, where he revealed that he has not considered fighting Israel Adesanya because of the long-standing friendship between them.
‘Absolutely, absolutely. If Izzy’s willing to move up – well he is moving up, but if he’s willing to give up that 185 belt and says “I have nothing to do with that anymore”, then absolutely I would entertain that thought.’ ‘On no account right now would I ever entertain going up to fight Izzy. That’s just not something that I’m interested in.
‘I’ve stated over and over before, I’d rather two Africans with belts as opposed to one African with two belts. After March, it’s gonna be three Africans with four belts. It’s a good time to be an African.’ he added.
