Conor McGregor made quite the shocking announcement when he announced that he wanted to fight Kamaru Usman for the UFC welterweight championship. Stephen Thompson was one of the many fighters that reacted to it.

Stephen Thompson is another person that doesn't like Conor McGregor's chances should he try to fight Kamaru Usman. The size and the wrestling of the UFC champion bother the South Carolina native.

“He’s going to get demolished,” Thompson said on his “What’s Up Everybody?!” podcast. “Yeah, it’s going to be a big fight, big payday, but you’re going to get demolished, dude. I love you, Conor, but you put on the weight like that, and you’re fighting a dude at 170. I mean, you’ve got to try and put some weight on to become a real 170. I mean, look at Kamaru. Look at the biceps and shoulders on that guy … and he’s got both attributes. He’s got cardio for days, and (he’s) one of the top wrestlers in the welterweight division.”

Stephen Thompson was not the only one that reacted to Conor McGregor wanting Kamamru Usman. UFC president Dana White was also asked to give his thoughts on the matter.

“It’s interesting. I hadn’t heard that,” White told The MacLife. “He’s coming into Vegas. We’re getting together soon, and we’re gonna talk. We’ll see what’s next. … Any Conor fight is good money-wise.”

Conor McGregor has plenty of other things to worry about as he has found himself in some legal trouble. Stephen Thompson is currently working on coming back to the cage against a striker.
