- Ali Abdelaziz proposed a title shot for the Irishman against championship-holding Usman

Irish professional mixed martial artist Conor McGregor has reportedly been paired with Nigerian nightmare Kamaru Usman for a title shot.

Both Nigerian UFC superstars currently hold the welterweight and middleweight belts following their impressive display in the mixed martial art sport in 2019.

The 32-year-old has also ruled out a potential super fight with the undefeated lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. The Nigerian Nightmare claims he has a lot of respect for the Russian fighter and regards him as his brother.

However, it was gathered that Ali Abdelaziz proposed a title shot for the Irishman against his other championship-holding client and says Usman would put him away in two rounds without using any takedowns.

Jorge Masvidal is the No.1 contender and has been slated to face Usman for some time now, but as Abdelaziz is alluding to, it seems as though 'Gamebred' has his eyes set on a rematch with Nate Diaz - with both expressing interest after the disappointing finish to what was an epic war inside the Octagon for the BMF title back in November.

And if Masvidal was to prefer that as his next fight, Abdelaziz will push for McGregor to meet Usman for the 170lbs title.

It would present an opportunity for the Notorious to potentially make further UFC history in becoming a three-weight world champion.

Recall Mcgregor earlier gave out the sum of one million euros to buy protective equipment in hospitals treating people who have contracted coronavirus in Ireland.

The 31-year-old UFC star was reported to have communicated with Republic of Ireland's Minister for Finance where he made his intention known so as to help his people.

Minister Paschal Donohoe sent a letter to Conor Mcgregor urging him to tell his followers on social media to practice social distancing in fight to prevent spreading coronavirus.

However, Legit.ng earlier reported that Mike Tyson was known for his brutal and merciless punches against opponents during his active boxing days which made him as one of the greatest boxers ever.

The American made so much money during his career in boxing and was the youngest boxer to win an heavyweight title when he was just 20 years. Going by all his achievements and the money he made, one will find it difficult to believe that Mike

Tyson was declared bankrupt in the year 2003. And according to the report on UK Sun, things were very difficult for the American that time that he had no choice than to sell his 50-room mansion.
