The Miami superstar has been campaigning for an immediate rematch, though a second fight against Usman this year seems unlikely with Gilbert Burns next in line for a UFC title shot.

But UFC commentary Jon Anik believes he's in a brilliant position and should target a fight versus Conor McGregor.

"The world is Jorge Masvidal's oyster right now," he said. "Any fight that Jorge Masvidal wants is at his disposal right now.

"I certainly have a healthy appetite for the Nate Diaz rematch. I think Conor McGregor would probably be my first choice, because of the magnitude of that fight.

"That's north of two million pay-per-view buys given the early returns on the number we did at UFC 251 but Masvidal has really bet on himself, and cashed.

"So, all of the big fights are available to him. It's just going to be a matter of what [UFC matchmaker] Sean Selby and [UFC president] Dana White choose to do."
