UFC 258 Preview
Kamaru Usman has yet to lose in the UFC, the lone loss on his resume coming in 2013 in the Championship Fighting Alliance. But Usman doesn’t walk around with the flamboyance of some top-level fighters. He lets his fighting do the talking for him.
“People see the way that I approach the sport and are like, ‘Why isn’t he talking more? Why doesn’t he talk crap? Why doesn’t he try to sell us what Conor McGregor sells us? Why isn’t he promoting himself?’ ” Usman told The New York Post. “For some of these people, it’s hard for them to grasp that I don’t have to do that. I don’t need to be that guy.”
Usman is defending his title for the third time, this time against a former teammate in Gilbert Burns.
“I want to take it one fight at a time,” Usman said. “That’s the biggest piece of advice that some of my mentors have given me. I want to take it one fight at a time because as long as I do that and I go out there and I take care of business that’s in front of me, by the time I’m said and done, everyone is going to look back and say, ‘Wow, he really was the greatest to ever do this.’”
Of course, Burns and Usman have history, but the champ doesn’t think that will have much bearing on the fight.
“We talkin’ bout practice,” Usman told UFC.com. “It’s different when you step inside that cage. It’s a whole different savage, and he’s going to realize that.
“He’s tough, and he’s followed the example that’s been put in front of him for years,” Usman added. “Him actually believing and following that example, look where it’s gotten him in recent years. I commend him for that. I’m, in a way, proud of him for being able to come up the rankings like that. At the end of the day, you have to step up to the guy that knows how to do this, that’s been doing this, and that’s what’s going to happen.”
