Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal was the perfect main event for the debut of Fight Island.
At UFC 251 in July, Jorge Masvidal finally got his welterweight title shot.
However, It didn’t go well as Masvidal lost to the “Nigerian Nightmare.
After a good opening round, Masvidal was dominated by Usman’s wrestling and forced to spend long stretches of the bout pinned up against the cage. It was a clear unanimous decision win for Usman.
Masvidal had approximately five minutes’ worth of cardio, resulting in twenty minutes of Usman pushing him up against the cage and potshotting him with point punches.
Masvidal claims that if only he had a proper camp! If only he hadn’t had to cut so much weight so quickly! Things might be different!
And now he has been campaigning for an immediate rematch against the welterweight champ.
Calling out Usman on twitter
“6 days. 20 pounds. Flew to Vegas,” Masvidal wrote on Twitter. “Vegas to Abu Dhabi. Fought the champ. Created the damage. He’s out for a minute. I’ve been ready since I got back. Time to move the division forward. Your move #supernecessary”
To bolster his claims he went ahead and retweeted a bunch of people who agreed with him, just more evidence he’s turning more and more into Conor McGregor on social media by the day.
However, Masvidal’s tweet was responded to by Edwards, who called for a fight against his rival Masvidal and also did the matchmaking for the rest of the welterweight division. He also called Masvidal a “pu**y.
