Jorge Masvidal On First Fight With Kamaru Usman: "He Hugged Me Like We Were At Prom"

UFC welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal isn't lacking confidence ahead of his rematch against UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman this Saturday night at UFC 261.

Masvidal who lost the pair's initial meeting at UFC 251 via a unanimous decision after taking the fight on just six days notice, doesn't seem too concerned about what the Nigerian champion was able to do him. Speaking via the UFC Countdown show the current BMF champion believes he just didn't polish up his dancing skills enough ahead of the first fight, taking a jab at the foot stomps Usman utilized.

“First time I fought Kamaru, he hugged me as hard as he could like we were at prom and tried to rub his feet with mine which was awkward and weird,” Masvidal said (h/t BJPenn.com). “The fight didn’t go as expected because I didn’t work on my tap dancing enough.”
