Kamaru Usman is certainly one of the top fighters in the world and many consider him the pound-for-pound world’s best fighter as well. He has competed at a high level for a long time now and always shuts up his critics.

Leon Edwards was the underdog heading into UFC 278, as he challenged Kamaru Usman for the UFC Welterweight Championship. No one believed he had a chance against Usman either.

However, against all odds, Edwards knocked out Kamaru Usman in the fifth round and became the new Welterweight Champion. While speaking to TMZ Sports, Kamaru Usman stated that he cannot wait for his trilogy fight with Leon Edwards, giving respect to his opponent.

“Everything is great,” Usman said. “It was just — what a shot. It was a great shot. I’m talking Hail Mary in the Super Bowl, last 10 seconds. That was a great shot, man.

It’s like everyone’s more sad about it than I am,” he added. “Everyone’s more emotional about than I am but that’s because — for me, that’s a good thing ’cause it lets me know that people care, people are invested.

I’m in a rare opportunity. I have a rare opportunity now to just inspire and motivate and show people that you can fall and get back up. I’m excited.”

We will have to wait and see when Kamaru Usman will be challenging Leon Edwards for a rematch. Perhaps Usman might be able to win back his title as well.
