After the champion Kamaru Usman’s fight with Gilbert Burns at UFC 258, he called out Jorge Masvidal in his post-fight interview.
Now a championship rematch is being targeted between UFC Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and the “BMF” title holder, Jorge Masvidal and this match is sure attracting a lot of attention.
Many people are not that happy with this match as they think Masvidal don’t deserve to get this title shot, and one such person is Leon Edwards. The No.3 ranked welterweight had some interesting comments about this fight.
In the recent interview he said, “I think Usman beats him 10 out of 10 times. I just don’t think Masvidal is a championship fighter. I think he’s a good fighter, good contender, but he will never be a champion in UFC.”
“Usman is probably thinking about the money, right? Easy work for a high payday.”
UFC is looking to book Usman and Masvidal as the coaches for new season of “TUF”
The talks about Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal being the coaches for the new season of “The Ultimate Fighter” is happening and now Masvidal’s team has said that the deal is sealed from their side and now they are waiting for Usman.
Now if this deal does happens then Leon Edwards would not be pleased at all, and he holds a special grudge against Masvidal following the fight that broke out between them backstage. But this event would surely be a hit and this is good business for the UFC and they will make this happen if both of them agrees.
