UFC Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman is definitely one of the top fighters in the world. He is considered as the pound-for-pound world’s best fighter as well. Besides Daniel Cormier, Joe Rogan also commented on Conor McGregor and Kamaru Usman’s beef.
Conor McGregor taking against Kamaru Usman, according to Joe Rogan, would be a mistake. During a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, the stand-up comedian discussed both combatants. Rogan began by praising Usman, describing him as the greatest pound-for-pound fighter alive.
Now he’s talking about fighting Kamaru Usman. Be careful what you ask for, Be careful what you ask for. Usman is a big man and he’s top of the food chain right now. That’s the best pound-for-pound fighter alive, Kamaru Usman, and he’s a natural 170. You’ve got to remember, Conor McGregor won the title at 145 and then he went up to 155 and knocked out Eddie Alvarez to become the champ-champ… Then he fought at 170 but he fought Cowboy Cerrone who is a natural 155 pounder. No knock on Cowboy, Cowboy’s beat a lot of good 170 pounders, he’s an elite fighter, but Usman’s a different thing. That’s a different peak. There’s no oxygen at the top of that mountain. That’s as good as it gets ever at 170.
Following that, Rogan stated that he feels Usman is the best 170-pound fighter of all time. He pitted Kamaru Usman against any 170-pound fighter in history. Rogan didn’t say he’d beat Georges St-Pierre or any of them, but he said he could beat all of them.
At 170 pounds, he could be the best ever. He has ferocious knockout power, is an expert wrestler, no one can put him on his back, and he’s still improving. Listen to Rogan’s interview with Monty Franklin below.
