The UFC Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman will be stepping inside the Octagon at UFC 258 to register his name in books of records. With a win against Gilbert Burns, ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ will be registering his name on the top spot in the list of all-time greats.
If he wins against Gilbert Burns, Usman will break Georges St-Pierre’s record for the most number of consecutive wins in UFC and Dana White is more than happy about it.
In his latest interview with TMZ sport, Dana White says, “Usman is tied with GSP for consecutive UFC wins at 12, If he wins this weekend, he breaks GSP’s record for 13. He’s on a 16-fight win streak. This guy has not lost in seven years.”
“He hasn’t lost since 2013. If he can get through Gilbert Burns on Saturday night, which is going to be a tough fight, he’s a guy that will just keep grinding, and one day we’re all going to wake up and go ‘oh wow’ and we’re all going to be talking about GOAT status for this guy.”
Dana White always had a sore relationship with GSP
It is no secret that the relationship between the UFC president Dana White and Gorges St-Pierre hasn’t been so good over the years. That’s because maybe GSP is the guy who does things in his own ways.
Georges St-Pierre returned after four years of his retirement to face Michael Bisping and he even defeated Bisping in that fight. Now Khabib Nurmagomedov has also shown the same intentions to face GSP.
Dana White wants to bring back Khabib at any cost and the way to do that goes through ‘Rush’. It is going to be interesting to see after Usman breaking his record will it get tempting enough for him to come back.
