Jorge Masvidal competed in the main event of UFC Fight Night London, defeating Darren Till by second round knockout.
Just spoke to UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman's manager Ali Abdelaziz: "We think Jorge Masvidal deserves the next title shot. Not Colby Covington. Colby is a terrible person and doesn't deserve it. Jorge just knocked out Darren Till like that? He should be next."— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) March 16, 2019
That proclamation would quickly get mocked by various UFC fighter, with Ben Askren taking the first shot:
Lololol his last win before Till was a January 2017. Ali you are a fool, if Marty doesn’t want to fight Colby I would happily oblige. https://t.co/VjRb7EWesy— Ben Askren (@Benaskren) March 17, 2019
Former UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Colby Covington would also join in on the fun, saying the following to Okamoto via text message, which the ESPN reporter posted on Twitter:
Covington is expected to get the first shot at the newly crowned welterweight champion, but nothing has been announced at this time.
