UFC heavyweight champion Kamaru Usman had choice words for his rival UFC 251 Jorge Masvidal ahead of their scheduled fight. The two elites will preside over the main card on Yas Island fighter island in Abu Dhabi. The fight was embodied in a notice just 6 days after Gilbert Burns was denied of his title after a positive test for COVID-19.
UFC 251's new highlights never lost love with each other as they entered the World Title Battle. Although the fighting started on short notice, the fighting was accumulating for most of the year. Since Masvidal has emerged as a prominent competitor three times in a row, he has quarreled with the "Nigerian Nightmare".
Kamaru Usman: "I will bless him with these hands."
Amid a tense back and forth in the media, tenacious resentment was created between 170 pounders. Kamaru Usman went after Jorge Masvidal during a recent interview with ESPN's Brett Okamoto.
"All I will say is that I will bless him with these hands in any way I can. Whether on his back, I will bless him with these fists. Whether he is standing, I will bless him with these fists."
Bad blood reached a boiling point on more than one occasion, as almost all fighters exited the cage. Earlier this year, an unpleasant interaction took place between Uthman and Masvidal at a Super Bowl show. Clearly, both athletes are seeking to solve the result.
It is up to him how to deal with that. Either you allow me to bless you in the first round where there is no more suffering, or you can endure it like Covington and I will bless you for 24 minutes until I get you out of there. "
Fight fans are brimming with excitement as the historic Fight Island card is ready to start. The MMA community has been calling for a fight between the two because it offers a compelling narration. Not to mention that the stylistic depth of the match-up is another element to behold.
