Kamaru Usman on Colby Covington: “I want to (expletive) that guy up so badly. I can’t be in a room with that guy. I can’t. I can’t be in a room with him. I just can’t. I can’t wait to heal up and really put my hands on him. That’s one I’m going to enjoy brutalizing him.”

Kamaru Usman on using his kicks: “I’ve been on one leg for years now. So to be able to open up and use my kicks will make me so much more dangerous it wouldn’t even be fair once I start to use some of the weapons we work on. Once I go into these fights and we have to go through the ringer to prepare for them and we know I’m not 100 percent going in, winning is the most important thing and dominating is the most important thing and that’s what we’ve been doing.”
