The beef between Jorge Masvidal and Kamaru Usman seems to be growing with each passing day. The pair have been trash-talking about each other for quite some time now.
There have been talks about the pair squaring up during the International fight week in July. Although it’s unclear if the fight will go as scheduled because of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. Meanwhile, the pair were ready to mix it up at UFC 249 as Khabib announced his withdrawal from the event.
UFC 249 is scheduled to take place on April 18. Although UFC is actively seeking opponents for Tony Ferguson, it’s unclear if any type of fight will take place on the scheduled date.
Jorge Masvidal is now the latest to take a dig at Kamaru Usman. He uploaded a hilarious diss video of Kamaru Usman on Youtube.
In the video, Kamaru Usman was seen talking to Joe Rogan about the time, when Masvidal punched Leon Edwards backstage following his TKO victory over Darren Till at UFC London.
Then the video showed the instances where Kamaru Usman admitted to liking Masvidal and paying him his dues and the reaction he made when Masvidal knocked out Ben Askren in just six-seconds at UFC 239.
Kamaru Usman has 38 personalities: Jorge Masvidal
Earlier in February, Masvidal explained his dislike for Kamaru Usman and said that he was a man of many personalities.
“He’s got like 38 personalities,” Masvidal said. “Every week I keep finding a new one. I don’t like any of them so far. I’ve known this guy for a while and he wasn’t that guy before. He was asking me for pictures and handshakes back in the day. Really his name is Kamarudeen. It’s not even Kamaru. He actually shortened up his real birth name. This guy is just a head case of head cases.” (H/T – MMA Junkie)
Kamaru Usman is coming off of a fifth-round TKO victory over Colby Covington at UFC 245. Prior to that, he won the UFC title by defeated Tyron Woodley at UFC 235.
