Kamaru Usman trolls Conor McGregor over 'three weights' boast with three pics of UFC star being choked outApril 7, 2022
KAMARU USMAN has mocked Conor McGregor's impressive record of knockouts in three divisions – reminding the UFC's poster boy he's suffered submission losses in each of the weight classes he's fought in.
McGregor, 33, became the first fighter in UFC history to score knockouts at featherweight, lightweight and welterweight in January 2020 with a 40-second demolition of Donald Cerrone.
The Irishman recently boasted about his exploits on Twitter, saying: "3 weights. 3 KO’s. Moving up. The one and only one to ever do it."
But that prompted reigning welterweight champ Usman to remind The Notorious has also been submitted in each of those divisions.
The Nigerian Nightmare posted a picture featuring images of McGregor's submission losses to Joseph Duffy, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Nate Diaz.
Usman's accompanying caption read: "I’ll just leave this here!!! #P4P."

"Fought the best in the division. You will lose when you do these things. Something you have yet to do big fella."
McGregor made a shock beeline for Usman last month, telling The MacLife: "I feel confident against Usman.
"A jab-happy, sloppy, orthodox wrestler with no submissions whatsoever.
"What’s he gonna do? Where’s the danger here?
"I don’t see a danger with him. His ground-and-pound isn’t strong, plus he’s on the older side.
"And then plus the world is to be took again. The triple crown.
"No one’s ever obtained three knockouts in three weight divisions moving up like I have already, but no one’s ever obtained three UFC world titles cross three divisions like I will do also if we make this fight.”
Former two-division champion McGregor is currently in the final stages of recovering from the horrific broken leg he suffered in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier last July.
McGregor was targeting a summer return to the octagon, but UFC president Dana White reckons Mystic Mac will be back in the autumn.
