Usman seems interested in facing Jorge Masvidal next, but the champion believes that Masvidal is going to be doing everything he can to avoid losing to the welterweight title holder.
The UFC Welterweight Champion would take to Twitter to accuse Masvidal of ducking him:
For all you real fans out there that know what’s up @GamebredFighter is doing everything possible to avoid taking this L @danawhite has spoken so STFU and take this ass whooping like the journeyman you are and then you can go fight Conor #OnceaBumalwaysaBum— KAMARU USMAN (@USMAN84kg) January 20, 2020
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).
