“Do something!” Usman shouted at Masvidal. “That’s all I hear you talking. Do something! You come up talking. Do something!”
“You got a cast on, b*tch,” Masvidal fired back. “I ain’t going to take advantage of you like that. You got a cast on b*tch. You lucky. That’s the only reason nothing’s happening.”
“You’re the one walking away. He pushed you back? You got a cast on, [expletive]. You’re lucky, that’s the only reason nothing has happened to you,” added Masvidal. (H/T – SCMP)

Jorge Masvidal vs Kamaru Usman?
This altercation could result in a future match-up between the two. In addition, Super Bowl is the most-watched American sports event and above all, this recent shuffle between the two in such a heavy media presence will only want fans to see this fight more.
In an interview with Ariel Helwani, the BMF belt holder said that he wants to fight Kamaru Usman next.
“The dude ain’t go no personality. He has 17 different f*cking personalities and not one of them is made for TV. So I want to f*ck his ass up.”
“Usman, you punk motherf*cker,” Masvidal said. “Look me in my eyes, Usman, when you see this interview and know that nothing but the truth comes from me. You’re f*cking dead.” (H/T – MMA Fighting
Masvidal’s popularity shot through the roof following three consecutive knockout victories last year, with the six-second KO of Ben Asken being the most prominent one.
On the other hand, Usman is coming off of a fifth-round TKO victory over Colby Covington at UFC 245. He is currently recovering from a hand injury.
