The fights Jorge has specifically asked for are against Colby Covington and Nick Diaz. Colby Covington is Jorge’s former best friend but due to their reason, they have now become arch-rivals and weren’t to settle their beef in the octagon. Masvidal fought Nate Diaz and defeated him via stoppage at UFC 244. After the fight in an interview, Nick Diaz the older brother of Nate said that he is interested to fight Jorge as he wouldn’t let anyone do this to his brother and get away with it. Both the fight makes sense considering the reason behind it.

“Spoke to Jorge Masvidal’s manager, Abraham Kawa, about what’s next for Masvidal. He said Masvidal is targeting a return in October/November against either Nick Diaz or Colby Covington.”

Jorge Masvidal has had a rough last year fighting-wise. His rivalry with the welterweight champion Kamaru Usman was the highlight of UFC for the past year. The duo first fought at UFC 251 on July 12.

Kamaru Usman was scheduled to face Gilbert Burns who stepped out as he was tested positive for COVID-19. Jorge then stepped in on less than a week’s notice to face Kamaru Usman for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251. He lost the uneventful fight via unanimous decision. The card reportedly generated 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in the United States, the most since UFC 229 in October 2018.

Now Masvidal feels he is ready to make his comeback after the brutal knockout loss. The opponents he has in his mind are nothing short of killers. Both Covington and Nick Diaz are amazing fighters and if one of them faces Jorge it will be an amazing matchup for the fans.
