Dana White Labels Kamaru Usman Welterweight GOAT
UFC President Dana White thinks Kamaru Usman is the welterweight GOAT.
Usman is set to put the UFC Welterweight Title on the line against Jorge Masvidal in a rematch. The two will collide on Saturday night, April 24. The title fight will headline UFC 261.
During an interview with TSN’s Aaron Bronsteter, White expressed his belief that Usman is the best welterweight that has ever lived (h/t BJPenn.com).
“Yeah, I just think if you look at what this guy has done. Every time he fights he looks better and better. He’s literally fought everybody out there, and now he’s going for a second run on these guys. And the fight with him and Colby Covington is one of the best fights I’ve ever seen.
“This division is stacked with killers right now. And like I said, the fight with him and Colby Covington. Love him or hate him, he’s one of the best fighters in the world. He’s a very, very good fighter and that fight was incredible. Both guys had to dig deep in that fight. It was one of the best fights I’ve ever seen, ever.”
