After beating Gilbert Burns at UFC 258 Kamara Usman wasted no time in calling out his next opponent.
In a post fight interview with Joe Rogan Usman called out Jorge Masvidal.
“We got this little street thug, calling himself a Jesus, thinking he’s Jesus. And you know, Joe, we tried to make that fight several times… but he kept backing out. The only reason this man took the fight is because it was on six days’ notice. And he had a built-in excuse, and he’s still running his mouth. Talking about he broke my nose and stepping in on six days. Give you three weeks, he’s going to do something. Guess what? It’s not done. I’ll give you a whole training camp. I guarantee you, you won’t sign on that dotted line.”
Afterwards Masvidal manager Malki Kawa, tweeted that he and his client have accepted Usman’s challenge. Kawa also added that both welterweight fighters should be coaches for the upcoming edition of The Ultimate Fighter.
Let’s do It. TUF. Masvidal vs usman. We accept.
