Will it dethrone him?
Starting with his sayings, Gilbert Burns He highlighted: «I know many things about him, he knows many things about me. I am training with many teammates who know a lot about him. They have helped me alot. It’s a little weird because I still like it a lot Kamaru. I have a lot of respect, but the way I see it, it will be tough competition. It’s going to be a tough day at the desk and I don’t know if it’s good or bad to meet the guy as I know him.
If people like the way I looked against Woodley, they have no idea how I’m going to show up now. I’m so much faster, stronger, faster, the cardio is there, the jiu-jitsu has improved a lot, fighting, hitting, I can’t wait. I think I am dangerous everywhere and I can finish the fight everywhere. Down, up, standing, with my hands, with my knees, with my kicks and even if you have to make a decision, we will make a decision, ”he also commented.
The words of the champion
For its part, Kamaru usman He emphasized: “Honestly, I don’t look at that. I do not think about that. I don’t think about things like that. I remember when Tyron Woodley said those things, he’s the greatest welterweight of all time and this and that. Of course he is in that conversation, but that is not something that he grants himself. That is not something I want to think about and say that I am this, I am that. No, I go out and do my job.
“I felt it with that Tyron Woodley situation. I felt like towards the end, he put so much pressure on himself, like ‘I’m the greatest welterweight ever, I’m this and that’ to where it’s almost like I’m sitting here, I know something you don’t know. I know I’m better and you’re sitting here and you’re worried that you’re the greatest welterweight of all time. It is what it is. But you’re going to get an ‘L’ on this one, ”concluded the welterweight king.
