ANDl UFC welterweight champion, Kamaru usman, has not paid much attention to the conversations that suggest against whom to defend his title now that he has beaten Colby Covington for the second time.

After winning the main event of UFC 268 against Covington, Usman told reporters that he just wants to go back to his family and spend time with his daughter Samirah.“My daughter is 7 years old. She doesn’t give a shit if Daddy has $ 20 million earned. When she’s 18, what he’s going to say is, ‘Where were you?'” The champion stated.

Although he does not want to talk about a future rival in the UFC, Usman had shown great interest in put on boxing gloves to fight Canelo lvarez in the near future.

Usman had said that the thought of preparing to share the ring with the Mexican superstar “literally” gave him the creeps. Is he only confrontation that scares him now that he has defended his welterweight belt against the best fighters in the UFC.

Nevertheless, Dana White thinks otherwise. The UFC president saluted Canelo after he won the Plant fight and jokingly He suggested to Usman not to mess with the veteran boxer.

White also bet $ 100,000 for Canelo to win by technical KO and went home with an additional 41,000 after the fight.
