UFC heavyweight fighter Kamaru Usman has been left unimpressed after being blasted by Conor McGregor for bringing his daughter to UFC 278, where he lost by KO to Leon Edwards.
McGregor lashed out at the former world champion and mentioned that in a tweet while watching him lose the UFC welterweight title last month.
A stunning head kick saw Usman fall to the canvass as he looked unconscious before he was whisked away from the arena.
Usman’s daughter was seated by the cageside as she cried after watching her father suffer a shocking loss.

McGregor, who told his wife and three kids to stay at home during his fight with Dustin Poirier, said as per Mirror:
“I feel this deep. I do not suggest bringing family whatsoever. Especially the children. This is different fighting. I’ve done both sides of this and feel going to the mission solo is best. You can see family again post battle. Will definitely be continuing this way going forward.”
The remarks seemingly infuriated Usman as he questioned how his rival could stoop during a recent interview with Joe Rogan. Usman said:
“The camera pans into the audience and they showed my daughter. My daughter cried and it was the weirdest thing. It was an instant trigger response. My heart, I wanted to cry just seeing that from her.”
Wilder claims Anthony Joshua is scared to fight him

Wilder also seems upset with boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, saying all was done to prevent a fight between him and Joshua from happening.
AJ, who lost all his heavyweight title belts to Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk in September 2021, was again defeated in their rematch on August 20.
