He stated that he did not mind being up at 185 pounds. Usman, renowned at welterweight (170 pounds), moved up to middleweight (185 pounds) as a replacement for the injured Paulo Costa in the UFC 294 bout. This potential shift in weight class has generated speculation and interest in Usman’s future fights and matchups in the middleweight division.

Khamzat Chimaev won by decision over Kamaru Usman at UFC 294. Two judges scored the fight in favor of Chimaev due to his early domination in the octagon. However, one judge scored it a draw, possibly recognizing the competitive nature of the fight.

Despite Chimaev’s victory, there was an acknowledgment that Kamaru Usman displayed significant skill and resilience, leading some to view him as the ‘real winner.’ Hence, watching Usman take on other middleweight contenders would interest fans.
