Jorge Masvidal Drops A Scathing Attack On Kamaru Usman’s Fighting Skills
BMF champ Jorge Masvidal has blasted Kamaru Usman and insisted that he is 'not impressed' with his fighting skills.
The 35-year-old UFC star successfully defeated Nate Diaz at UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
And Masvidal could be lined up as Usman's next opponent should he successfully defend his UFC welterweight championship against Colby Covington on 14th December in Las Vegas.
However, Masvidal was unfazed by the prospect of stepping into the octagon with the 'Nigerian Nightmare.'
"Not at all impressed [by Usman]," he told Yahoo!
"There's some things he does well, which is just stall. He just gets a leg, takes guys down.
"I'm a fan of grappling, but I like to see offensive grappling."
Usman, 32, dismantled Tyron Woodley in a stunning performance at UFC 235 in March to capture the welterweight championship.
But Masvidal made a bold claim that the welterweight champ wouldn't even land a kick on him in a fight.
"He can't kick nothing, man," 'Gamebred' said.
"It's like me saying there's an MMA guy which is a great boxer technique-wise. Nah, he's a great boxer for MMA.
"Maybe Usman is a great kicker for the YMCA, the public club. He's not kicking me. That guy would never land a kick on me."
Masvidal has ignited a fierce rivalry with Nick Diaz after his victory over Nate on 2nd November.
Nick, 36, revealed that he was eyeing up a UFC return in 2020 and is targeting Masvidal for comments made about his younger brother.
And Masvidal has wasted no time in calling on the Stockton native to step up and avenge Nate's defeat.
"If he's got that fire lit under him, I know we're going to have a fight," he told Brendan Schaub on an episode of the Food Truck Diaries.
"I know Nick's a dog. He's going to take whatever I can give, and I'm going to give him everything that I got to hit the off button, to turn him off, as well, so I'm excited for the fight.
"I know he wants to hurt me. He has to avenge his little brother, so it's a fight that pumps me up."
