Meanwhile, 'The Nigerian Nightmare' insists Masvidal is the "toughest" opponent he's faced.
"He's the best out of each and every one of (my past opponents). He's the best. He's the next guy in front of me," the defending champion explained.
"He's the toughest guy in front of me, so I don't take him lightly. I'm going out there with all my thoughts, the thought that he's the best opponent that I have faced today, and I have to go out there and treat him accordingly."
