Masvidal says BMF belt not on line vs ‘dork’ Usman but Nigerian Nightmare vows to ‘ragdoll’ him at UFC 251 Fight Island


- Advertisment -

JORGE MASVIDAL hinted his ‘Baddest Mother F***er’ belt will not be on the line against Kamaru Usman – as he does not fit the billing.

Masvidal, 35, won the unprecedented belt in November after beating Nate Diaz, also 35, in a battle of fan-favourites.

He now prepares to challenge for welterweight gold on Saturday as he headlines UFC 251 on ‘Fight Island’ against champion Usman.

Though Usman will be putting his title on the line, Masvidal vows not to return the favour, believing his opponent is not worthy of BMF status.

He told ESPN: “You gotta be a BMF to put that title on the line.

“I’m fighting dorkiest motherf***er. It doesn’t go that way.”

Masvidal has taken the fight on just a week’s notice, after Gilbert Burns was dramatically pulled from the pay-per-view event after testing positive for Covid-19.

Burns was only handed the fight after the UFC failed to agree terms with Masvidal initially, who threatened to walk out of the promotion following a pay row.

Champion Usman, who did spend a large chuck of time preparing to face his opponent Saturday night, insists the sudden switch up will not stop him from “rag dolling” his rival as he promised to also win the BMF belt.

Usman told TMZ Sports:  “At the end of the day, when you’re in training camp, the way that I train, you see no face.

“When I cross into that Octagon, I have to turn on the Nigerian nightmare and leave Kamaru Usman on the outside. And, so I see no face by the time I’m in there anyway.”

“Now it’s a little extra push to get in there and really do some damage.

“After I go out there and beat his ass and ragdoll him, that s*** is coming home with me so I can throw it in my closet.”
