When Willis brought up the welterweight champ, McGregor said he believes “that’s the fight to make, I believe myself vs Usman for the 170 lb title for my comeback fight is the one I’m eyeballing at the minute.”

“I feel confident against Usman, a jab happy, sloppy, orthodox wrestler with no submissions whatsoever, what’s he gonna do?

“I don’t see a danger with him. His ground and pound isn’t strong, plus he’s on the older side.”

McGregor went on to talk about his goal of becoming a three-division champion – the first in UFC history.

“The triple crown, no one’s ever obtained three KO’s in three weight divisions moving up and no one’s ever obtained three UFC world titles across three weight divisions like I will do if we make this fight,” McGregor said.

A McGregor-Usman matchup would undoubtedly produce massive numbers for the UFC and would be arguably the biggest fight of the year for the fight game.
