The UFC's BMF champion Jorge Masvidal has sent a threatening message to UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman — this and much more on Friday's social media roundup.
Jorge Masvidal sends a message to Kamaru Usman
The BMF champion of the UFC Jorge Masvidal has sent a message to his most previous opponent Kamaru Usman who he lost to via unanimous decision at UFC 251.
I took your nose on 6 days. 3 weeks I take the belt. Full camp I take your head #theresurrection— Jorge Masvidal UFC (@GamebredFighter) February 12, 2021
Masvidal sent a warning to Usman on Twitter by saying "I took your nose on six days. Three weeks I take the belt. Full camp I take your head." Masvidal has been campaigning for a rematch against Usman since he lost to him. Masvidal fully believes that if he had a full camp and not just the six days which he got that he would be the world champion.
Usman has also said in previous weeks that he would love to fight Masvidal again because he went into their fight with a broken nose and would love to get the opportunity to finish Masvidal.
Do you think a rematch between Usman and Masvidal would go any differently or would Usman dominate again?
Leon Edwards wants to fight Nate Diaz
After having his bout with Khamzat Chimaev canceled for the third time, Leon Edwards is desperate to move on and fight someone instead of waiting for Chimaev like UFC president Dana White has wanted him to do on the two previous occasions the bout has been canceled.
It seems that Edwards has set his sights on a few different opponents but the main one of those is UFC star, Nate Diaz.
Nate just dribbled for an hour about wanting to fight at 170 against winners... let’s see it then @NateDiaz209. 8 fight win streak and #3 in the world. Let’s go if you still think you're a real one https://t.co/PUaPfwtRPQ— Leon 'Rocky' Edwards (@Leon_edwardsmma) February 12, 2021
Edwards' manager Paul Simpson has said that Edwards is also interested in fights with Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington.
