Negotiations For Kamaru Usman And Jorge Masvidal Fight Are 'Done'

Negotiations For Kamaru Usman And Jorge Masvidal Fight Are 'Done'

Negotiations for the huge fight between Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal are "done" according to ESPN's Ariel Helwani.

Having been at odds with UFC president Dana White over a pay dispute, Masvidal immediately volunteered to take on the UFC welterweight champion at UFC 251 on July 12 on short notice after scheduled challenger Gilbert Burns tested positive for COVID-19.

And now it's said all terms have been agreed, with the two both jetting into Las Vegas. The only thing stopping the mouthwatering bout from going ahead is a positive coronavirus test from either of the pair.

Kamaru Usman Defeats Jorge Masvidal At UFC 251

Usman-Masvidal for the welterweight strap on the dunes of Abu Dhabi is a considerably more exciting prospect than the scheduled defence against Burns, so here's hoping the duo are both free of COVID-19 and free to put on a show inside the Octagon on 'Fight Island'.

After all, there's serious animosity between Usman and Masvidal, particularly following their heated altercation at a Super Bowl media day back in January when they had to be pulled apart in Miami.
