The UFC Welterweight Champion would take to Twitter to accuse Masvidal of ducking him:


Masvidal has previously stated that he would rather face former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor instead of Masvidal, but the fighter has changed his tune in the last few days. Masvidal does sit at #3 in the UFC Welterweight Division rankings and Usman has already defeated the two fighters who are ranked ahead of Masvidal (the aforementioned Covington and former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley).
