Thanks for the heads up on that, especially after reading lees comment below, Shavakat looks like a future contender.

He most definitely looks like a contender, I think a fight with him against Chimaev would be crazy to see! Hopefully the UFC puts that together in the future 🤞🏼

100% I wanna see that fight, after Chimaev v Covington tho 😉

I think either of them vs Covington would be a banger!

Wonder if Covington would ever make it to the title? Imagine being that good but never being good enough because the champ is an unstoppable beast.

Well Usman has said that he doesn’t know how much longer he’s gonna be fighting, so if he’s not there then that’s Colby’s best shot at the title imo. I think it’s clear that he’s always gonna be 2nd best as long as Usman is there. 🤷🏻‍♂️ What do you think about Leon giving Masvidal the first shot at it if he beats Kamaru?

That's a really good point, Usman talking about boxing Canelo also shows that he might be looking for an exit sooner or later. He hasn't talked much about going up into Izzy's division has he?

I love Usman, what an athlete. His Dad's story is also an incredible listen really.

I think he’s definitely looking for an exit soon with Chimaev, Shavakat and other welterweight contenders coming up! And him and Izzy have both said they have no intentions on fighting each other since their both Nigerian brothers. But Usman is an insane athlete and his story with his dad is awesome, I had no idea about it until a couple weeks ago!
