Out of all the fighters they could have given Usman, they give him Emil Meek.......

Usman really does deserve a name at this point, he's clearly a championship level fighter

I agree with aussie he really has done enough to warrant the very least a top fifteen opponent. Whats Dong Hyun Kim up to?

Or what about a Leon Edwards? Or Gunnar Nelson? Or what about someone with at least a name like Zak Cummings or Danny Roberts or Bryan Barberena? Emil has had 1 UFC fight and it was against Jordan Mein! I just don't get why this fight was made!

Mairbek Taisumov is treated the same as Usman, probably even worse because he has more of a winning streak and like 6 knockout wins in a row

With everyone in the top 10 booked, I was thinking Gunnar was the fight to make for Usman. It's too bad they went this route instead.
