Stephen Thompson Argues Fight With Kamaru Usman “Makes Sense”
By FCF Staff
After Usman stopped Burns in the third round on Saturday, he relayed he wants to fight Masvidal again. Usman defeated his rival by decision last summer, in a fight that Masvidal took on short notice.
Thompson, meanwhile, tweeted out his case for a fight with the champ.
Well seeing as how I’m the only guy in the top 5 that Usman hasn’t fought yet….I guess I’m next…makes sense right? Great performance
