  • He was right again.

  • @4lo12 usman is a losing his next fight

  • Kamaru usman is getting knocked out his next fight

  • Well here we are after Saturday, lot of surprises no foot stumps, no wrestling,no Gilbert Burns winning,had a good chance in the 1. Round but didn't capitalize on the opportunity. On Saturday was Kararudeen Usman is everything but a boring fighter and STILL the Champ. Good work 👍

  • We saw the dog tonight indeed exactly like Kamaru said. It was an impressive win.

  • They got it so wrong.. "Burns needs to throw those hands fast and hard for Usman to go to Plan B" Usman's plan B was not going to the ground, He Knocked the soul out of Burns with those Jabs.

  • Usman has that Iron Body Style of fighting

  • Usman went 40 percent

  • All of you racist Usman haters, where are you now?

  • So what’s the excuse now? Where the foot stomp comments?

  • Say something about the king Usman now

  • usman is about to light him up!

  • Marty: Whoops my moms calling Megan: Oh, is she in prison too?

  • God willing my brother usman gonna win

  • very rushed interview and discussion

  • Anthony Hernandez

  • Show us more chael, anik and brett! love seeing this trio up there

  • Honestly he's right, better wrestling and strength plus 3inch reach. Gilbert has everything but far superior BJJ

  • Whats her insta ??

  • Let’s go big fight night!

  • Megan olivi is bae 😍😍😍

  • kamaru usman win by knock out

  • Usman should not let them hands go cause his hands aren’t elite. Usman wins with his head in Burns crotch and hold him against the fence. Burns is gona want to stay off the fence and allow the Usman to grapple and try to get dominant positions . If the fight is like the Usman vs Covington , Usman WILL lose his hands are not as good as burns

  • I got Usman winning... I don't want to hear Burning shouting PORRA at the end😅😅

  • Okamoto is a journalist, not a commentator. Never again!

  • This looks like someone recorded a tv screen with a potato.

  • I hope the thumbnail is not letting us know we are in for some BS

  • They did my man Usman dirty with that half assed thumbnail from the 80’s

  • I try and I try, but I just cannot like kamaru

  • They did marty dirty

  • Marty juiceman !?!

  • megan so sexy

  • Great analysis by uncle Chael

  • "I see toes in Gilbert's game"-Kevin Usman.

  • Usmans one of the best fighters out but no one likes him cause theres no enjoyment in watching a guy whos won 50% of his fights via decision

  • Kamaru Usman VS Khamzat Chimaev is suuuch a big fight. I hope it happens 🙏.

  • Ayo Uncle Chael-----was waiting for his view on the fight

  • The thumnail brings out the inner marty.

  • why is kamaru's hoodie so big? man lost his hairline and his gains? wagwan for the UFC these days mannn..

  • Usman gonna win mark my words, and im not even a usman fan

  • He lost rounds to Colby

  • Dont be cocky man u see wht happen to the eraser got erased showing off lol

  • I decide when to foot stomp

  • Slim chance I eat my words this morning (Europe) but only man who has the biggest chance of beating him is Colby. Burns is gonna get schooled in this fight.

  • I hope usman wins prove his ex team wrong and smash Gilbert let’s go!

  • I hope Usman wins. Burns being disrespectful.

  • "I decide when we footstomp"

  • The foot of Kamaru

  • Chael looks like testosterone

  • ZzzzZzzz..

  • Usman is a Beast. Huge respect after colby stoppage. and the one way traffic in masvidal fight.

  • This man is a monster. He’s going to be a dominant champ for a long time. Already a cardio machine and then he goes to high elevation Denver to train with one of the best coaches in the game Trevor Whitman

  • Everytime I see Usman talk, I flash back to Woodley saying "he's always lickin his lips and talking like LL Cool J." 🤣🤣

    • Hahahaha!!! 💪🏻😆😆😆😆👍🏻 Give Marty a bucket hat 👒

  • Yall did him dirty with the thumbnail

  • Marty gameplan: clinch and foot stomp until Gilbert feet go numb.

    • Was that? 😂.

  • 223 fighters in UFC history have spent at least 1 hr of Grappling. Only 2 of the 223 fighters have held control positions for over 97% of their grappling time. Khabib nurmagomedov - 97.40% Kamaru Usman - 97 .36%

  • Marty going to ask for an immediate rematch: "that was me at just 30% imagine me at 31%"

    • @WHITE LION Come on dude, no excuses. Fighter means you have close calls. But usman destroyed burns.

    • @WHITE LION "Lucky" please that's an excuse.

    • @Anish 318 He lucky he survived the first round. I was so excited. 😔😔😔

    • @Anish 318 but uSmAN iS BoRInG aNd CrINGe right? Lmao Dude is an absolute monster

    • Well what do you think now.

  • Strike First. Strike Hard. No mercy.

  • Thumbnail: On this day, in Black History Month, we remember the first African from Nebraska to become a UFC fighter.

  • Y’all are sleeping on Burns wrestling

  • If usman holds burns against the fence n just stomps on his feet like he did to masvidal, they should strip him, nobody wants to see the champ do that!

  • “USMAN telling Megan Olivi ghost stories before his fight”

  • Snoozeman still on EPO

  • I'll believe when I see been waiting for that "savage dog" since your debut ya boring dweeb

  • kamaru is way cooler when he isnt forced into trash talk

  • Usman is such a fake insecure person. Very transparent.

  • If Usman wins this he beats George St. Pierre record of most consecutive wins in the welterweight division in the UFC. Lets go! 🇳🇬

  • They should pay me to watch Snoozeman

    • Usman has shown in numerous videos he has a narcisstic disorder. As an expert analyst it's hard to ignore whenever he shows up on camera. The best UFC fighters that share this disorder is Israel Adesanya and Jon Jones. Mcgregor was just like them but he changed his ways when Diaz collided with him on multiple occasions. The contrast between real and fake was so strong that Nate Diaz managed to show the fans how fake Conor really was then later on Khabib exposed him. But kudos to Usman, being a egomaniac helps you win fights. If you find him hard to listen to it's only normal. Until Usman and Masvidal do a press conference and i don't see him ever being challenged so get used to him. Colby seems too timid and scared around him. Credit to Ben Askren though he was really underrated🤣

  • You are no GOAT! Usman.

  • Sometimes I feel like he says stuff to try to convince himself or because he thinks it will make him appear a certain way. Not sure if we going to see the real Usman ever

  • Usman is going to make a statement Burns is going to get Burnt🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

  • I'm here hoping to see Usman get knocked out. AM I THE ONLY ONE ?!?! idk why man but I've always not liked this guy.

  • I decide when I get finished - McGregor

  • Marty Fake Newsman

  • benvanidez is one lucky man that lil guy

  • How isnt leon fighting for the belt

  • World champ Brett Okamoto with the expertise

  • Tha thumbnail is trending lol

  • Usman shaved his head?

  • Who remembers that Megan Olivi troll account from back in the day ? XD

  • Go Gilbert.

  • Usman has that personality with zero charisma. kind of remind me of mighty mouse even tho mighty mouse was way way more espectacular when fighting than Usman.

  • how do you win 8 fights in a row in this division and not fight for the belt?? that's crazy to me. guys like chimaev will have 2 fights in this division in his whole career and get a title fight. dana be crazy sometimes.

  • Chael "Ooozeman"

  • bruh how can kamaru say fighting burns is just business when they were genuinely friends but does not want to fight khabib and izzy just cuz they are well-acquainted

  • That thumbnail though

  • Marty!!!

  • I think we are about to see a long drawn out fight of usman the big bro just picking on his little bro. Someone reply to this tho if burns knocks out usman 😅
