Masvidal accepted the fight against Usman on short notice and now the BMF champion is calling out the welterweight champion for a rematch, this time with a full training camp behind him.
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— Jorge Masvidal UFC (@GamebredFighter) August 9, 2020
Usman, who is currently out of action due to a nose injury suffered at UFC 251, has yet to respond to Masvidal, but one fighter did respond to Masvidal and that person was Leon Edwards.
Fight me then pussy https://t.co/MCVgL73m0T— Leon 'Rocky' Edwards (@Leon_edwardsmma) August 9, 2020
There has been no response yet from Masvidal after being called out by Edwards, as the two have been rivals ever since they got physical backstage during the UFC Fight Night London event.
With Usman facing Gilbert Burns next, it seems like there is an opportunity for Masvidal and Edwards to settle their issues inside of the Octagon.
