And Masvidal pulled no punches as he responded to Usman's damning assessment of the title picture.

"When you get into negotiations for fights, these things happen. Gilbert Burns has been on a tear and was consistently fighting and wanted to continue to fight and was the number one contender, so Gilbert Burns made sense."

He continued: "Obviously Masvidal has become a massive star over the last year and a half, and that's the fight that people want to see, so when Burns fell out, we got in a room and figured Masvidal out."
