Jorge Masvidal's Tweet About UFC 249 Has Got Fans Very Excited

Jorge Masvidal's Tweet About UFC 249 Has Got Fans Very Excited

Jorge Masvidal has gotten fans very excited after hinting at his availability for the UFC 249 - with his potential opponent being welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.

The show's main event of Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson was plunged into doubt on Monday when Khabib confirmed he was stuck in his native Russia.

It's currently unknown who Ferguson's opponent will be but it looks as if BMF champ Masvidal has declared for the show and could try and steal the spotlight.

He sent shock waves across social media with his tweet which many think is aimed at Usman.

'Gamebred' tweeted the simple message of, 'April 18 I'm free #theresurrection.'

He then followed it up with another message which read, 'Second time I say yes to the crotch sniffing champ, second time he has a date.'

Despite the 35-year-old seeming up for a fight in less than two weeks time, Ariel Helwani has reported that sources inform him the welterweight clash is 'not looking likely'.

Meanwhile, Khabib vs Ferguson being called off for a fifth time is a bitter blow to fight fans who've been anticipating a showdown for years.

'The Eagle' insisted he returned to his homeland as he wasn't informed on the location of the fight.

Speaking on Instagram (via RT Sport), he revealed: "We were training in the AKA without any information regarding the fight, where and how is it going to happen.

"Then the UFC told us that the fight 100% isn't happening in the States. And they said that 99% that it will happen in Emirates, Abu Dhabi.

"After talking to the UFC we decided to fly over to the Emirates a month before the fight. I don't remember the exact date, it was 19th or 20th, I'll have to check. But when we landed in Emirates we learned that they are going to close borders. And no one will be able to leave or fly in, with exception for residents.

"So we had to fly back to Russia. Currently I am in Dagestan and I am training and preparing every day. Although I don't know what am I preparing for. Because after we came to Russia we also learned that the borders are going to be locked. Same like in the States, same like in Europe, Emirates, everywhere. The whole world is in quarantine right now."

Usman has since taken to social media and tweeted out: "Start Cutting Weight MuthaFucka!!!"

Masvidal wasted no time in firing back at Usman's manager, Ali Abdelaziz, saying he plans to 'cut his client's head off.'
