“The rush is not the same”

KAMARU USMAN said Conor McGregor’s “hustle isn’t the same” and has “demons he fights”.

The Irishman was once the first-ever UFC two-weight champion but has now gone two years without a win and has lost three of his last four.

McGregor also promised fans ‘complete abstention’ from his Proper 12 whiskey and stout beer after rambling Instagram posts from his pub.

And UFC champion Usman fears the sport’s highest-paid fighter can no longer have the same motivation that first led him to the gold.

He continued Club Shay Shay: “The rush is not the same as sleeping on silk sheets.

“So with him, I don’t know why he’s not that successful, maybe he has a lot of things going on.

“He’s got his demons he’s fighting, but I’m not going to kick a man while he’s down.

“That’s what’s so special about this sport, you have to be honest with yourself.


“You have to understand the areas where you are weak and you have to make sure you bring those up to the level.

“That’s able to mix it together.”

The pair have been running back and forth bones leading Usman lately to publicly challenge the Irishman in 2020.

He would instead defend his belt against Jorge Masvidal, 37, and accused McGregor, 33, of to give him the silent treatment.

Usman, 34, added: “I wouldn’t fight Khabib. Khabib is like my brother, I don’t see any interest in it.

“Conor, absolutely. Once before I fought Masvidal he tweeted a lot.

“I said, ‘Here’s your chance. Now if you pick up the phone and call the UFC, they’re not going to say no to you when you’re fighting for the belt.’

“Then he was quiet. And then the next week he started calling Anderson Silva, retired fighters and things like that.

“So would I fight Conor? The offer is there.”
