Imavov challenged Usman

Nassurdin Imavov, French UFC middleweight, addressed the organization's former welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, inviting him to fight at a promotion tournament in Saudi Arabia, which will be held on June 23.

“Welcome to the middleweight division, Kamaru! Styles make fights. Let’s fight on June 22 in Saudi Arabia,” Imavov wrote on his social networks.

Usman only fought one fight at middleweight, losing by majority decision to Khamzat Chimaev. Kamaru accepted this fight on very short notice, and, nevertheless, was able to give a worthy rebuff to Chimaev, who had already been called a middle division prospect.

As for Imavov, in his last fight he beat Roman Dolidze by decision.
