Page wants to fight Usman before the end of the year

British UFC welterweight veteran Michael Page said that if he wins over Ian Harry, he would like to fight former champion Kamaru Usman before the end of the year.

"If I decide to come back in the UK tournament, I'll probably have another fight to do. Usually the UFC has a tournament there in March. So the idea of having one more fight before the end of the year sounds great. I'll finish Ian first and then maybe face Usman. He's the number one ranked welterweight. There's no point in wasting time. If he agrees to do it, it'll be glorious. I will defeat him and no one will have any questions about my status as a top contender for the UFC belt," MMA Mania quoted Page as saying.

Page is expected to face Harry on July 27 at UFC 304 in Manchester, UK.
