Kamaru Usman Blasts UFC Rankings Following KO Win
By FCF Staff
Following Kamaru Usman’s knockout win at UFC Fight Night 116, the rising welterweight had some harsh words for the media members that determine the UFC’s rankings.
Usman took on Sergio Moraes at the Pittsburgh event, and finished the latter in round one with punches. The victory was the 29 year-old’s sixth straight since he joined the UFC in 2015, and it moved his winning streak to nine.
After the bout, Usman had this to say, while discussing the UFC’s rankings (quotes via MMA Junkie):
“Whoever is in charge of making those rankings, whoever it is – or whoever the collective group is that’s in charge of making those rankings – you should be ashamed of yourself,” Usman said. “You should be.”
“You had me at 13th; are you kidding me?” Usman added. “I am a problem in the division. There is not one guy that wants to take this fight – not one. How many people do you know calling me out? There’s not one guy who wants this fight.”
With the win on Saturday, Usman moved his overall record to 11-1.
