Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as The Rock, has a personal relationship with the Gamebred, has praised him on numerous occasions. The Rock was the one who presented the inaugural BMF Title to Masvidal. Following the loss at the hand of Usman Kamaru, The Rock praised Masvidal for his efforts and that Championship success is inevitable for him.
Dwayne has time and again showed his support towards the UFC organisation and has been a fan of the sport himself for a long time.
However, going to talk about the main event of UFC 251, Masvidal accepted the fight in just six days’ notice after original competitor Gilbert Burns tested positive of coronavirus. Usman was always a tough opponent to lay down and going into the octagon Masvidal realised that. Ever since the 1st round got over, he and everybody else knew the outcome. Usman won by unanimous decision but surely earned Masvidal’s respect.
There could be possible fights lined up for Masvidal, one likely to be the rematch against Diaz, but there are no signs of him returning what so ever. On the other hand, the predictable fighter who Usman would go against could be Burns.
