'Me and Izzy have to go talk in the back room' - Kamaru Usman gives $100m condition to fight 'brother' Israel Adesanya
For 100 million dollars, Kamaru Usman is ready to fight his Nigerian brother Israel Adesanya.
Usman and Adesanya are both Nigerian stars in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
Usman is the reigning Welterweight champion while Adesanya holds the middleweight belt.
The two Nigerians have dominated their divisions for quite a while and fans are expecting a potential fight between the two stars.
Usman was a guest on Club Shay Shay, a podcast by former American sports analyst and former tight end in the National Football League Shannon Goad Sharpe.
In the interview with Sharpe, Usman revealed that he will prefer not to fight Adesanya given the fact that they are from the same country.
He however made it known that a 100 million offer will be tempting to ignore.
He said, "They want to offer us a hundred million dollars me and Izzy gonna have to go in the backroom and talk about this.
"Ah okay hey what we want to do it hundred million dollars you know you got mom and dad now they living up there right in the upper room, they live in somewhere nice now you know.
"That's the conversation man would have to have but right now it don't make no sense for me because.
" I've said it before two Nigerians having belts right is more important to me.
"All my life been grinding all my life sacrifice hustle paid the price wanna slice got the roll of dice.
"That's why all my life I've been grinding all my life look all my life been running all my life sacrifice plus will pay the price."
Not long ago, Adesanya blasted Usman's promoter Ali Abdelaziz for his comments about a fight between the two fighters.
