Top-heavy welterweight UFC Kamaru Usman (13-1), defeating Demyan Maya (25-9) in the main event of the UFC Fight Night 129 tournament, said that he defeated the most dangerous opponent in the division and earned a fight for the championship belt.
“I think I have to fight for the title in the next fight. I just dominated Maya more confidently than Woodley did. Tyrone ran away from him all the fight and threw out, it seems, the least blows in history, and I dominated the entire fight from start to finish.
Let’s speak frankly, no one in my division wants to fight me, because I will be the most difficult contender for any fighter. The fight with Maya is the duel that Dana White wanted, he wanted to check me out as the most dangerous fighter in the division, and I just won him.
Woodley is an easier opponent for me. Also we have two bags that will fight for a temporary belt, it would be easier for me to win them too. Maya was the most difficult opponent for me in the division.
Woodley or the battle for the title of challenger number one against the winner of the fight Stephen Thompson – Darren Till – I’ll fight only against one of them, “Usman said.
