Usman already defeated many of the top 10 welterweight fighters and now he got the only option to face some of them twice. It is believed that the former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington is next in the line for a title shot.

But Covington’s former teammate and all-time rival, Jorge Masvidal predicts this is fight is going to be one easier win for Kamaru Usman. In his latest interview with ESPN, Masvidal says,

“I think Kamaru keeps his hands up and comes to fight Colby the same fight that he did the first time. He just puts a thorough beating on him, Colby will try and get some takedowns on him, and it might not work.”

Jorge Masvidal continued, “As long as Kamaru is in wrestling shape and comes in the same as the first time, hands up, pressuring him, I think he breaks him again. His hands are where they need to be at right now.”

“I bet he’s gonna have more confidence than ever because he knows I’m somebody that’s never been finished so he can definitely take that with pride of honor, put his hard head on, keep getting the work. I think he gets a finish on Colby.” {H/T MMA Junkie}
