Jorge Masvidal Names Fight He Wants After Usman, Would Be One Of The Biggest In UFC History‬

Jorge Masvidal Names Fight He Wants After Usman, Would Be One Of The Biggest In UFC History‬

By Mike Parrott

Jorge Masvidal has named the man he wants to face next after his upcoming contest against Kamaru Usman. Masvidal said he owes the fighter after he gave him a shot in the past.

Masvidal is set to fight Usman at the highly-anticipated UFC 251, located at UFC Fight Island, in Abu Dhabi. Masvidal is aiming to take the UFC Welterweight Championship away from Usman and is already discussing who he wants if he wins.

When asked by ESPN, Masvidal said he wants to repay his favour and give Nate Diaz a chance at the belt if he is able to take it off Usman.

Diaz and Masvidal famously fought last year in November at UFC 244 with Masvidal coming out the winner, with the doctor calling an end to the fight at Madison Square Garden.

Nate Diaz remains a fan of his rival and showed his approval of Masvidal coming in to replace Gilbert Burns in the upcoming UFC 251 main event.

When talking to ESPN, Masvidal said: "I always said Nate's a bad mother******, man...There's two guys on my radar and Nate is definitely one of them because, no matter what, it was a good fight. Me or the world didn't get the result we wanted and I know Nate wants to run it back.

"Speaking from the heart, I want to run it back so when I get this title, would anything be better than giving him the opportunity he gave me to fight for his BMF belt?"

Masvidal faces Usman at UFC 251 on Sunday, July 12 at 3am BST.
