UFC Star Jorge Masvidal Sends Message To Dana White, Calls for Rematch With Kamaru Usman
Masvidal lost a lopsided decision to Usman at UFC 251 after stepping in on just six days' notice.
He lost 20lbs on fight week to make weight as he came up short in his bid to become UFC welterweight champion last month on 'Fight Island'.
But 'Gamebred' wants a second shot at 'The Nigerian Nightmare' as he took to social media to throw down the gauntlet for a blockbuster rematch.
On Twitter, he wrote: "6 days. 20 pounds. Flew to Vegas. Vegas to Abu Dhabi. Fought the champ. Created the damage. He's out for a minute. I've been ready since I got back. Time to move the division forward. Your move #supernecessary."

The Miami superstar recently teased a November/December Octagon return following his short notice bout against Usman.
When asked about his next fight, the 35-year-old replied: "Hopefully, December/November."
He added: "My opponent has a broken nose, he's going to be out for a couple days due to me. He does have a broken nose.
"I think next week we're going to find out just how long he's out for and then we'll start determining who will be the next fight and where."
Usman's dominant victory over Masvidal came at a price as he suffered a broken nose.
And it appears Team Masvidal will wait until they find out how long he's out for before committing to his next UFC assignment.
