Masvidal prefers immediate rematch vs. Usman


After losing a unanimous decision to welterweight king Kamaru Usman at UFC 251, Masvidal wants nothing more than a chance to face him again.

Now he would love nothing more than to have a full training camp and immediate rematch with Usman.

“Usman obviously, it’s a no-brainer,” Masvidal told ESPN when asked what he ideally wants next. “Usman. Could they offer me bigger names and pay me more money? Yes. For a fact. But if it’s up to me, Usman. For me stepping up on six days’ notice when nobody else would. Cause a lot of people are saying they would, but who else did it? Who else really actually asked [UFC President] Dana [White]? Who else was actually like, ‘Hey, if Masvidal doesn’t do it, I will do it, I’m right here, I’m ready to go, let’s do it.’

“If it’s up to me, of course, Usman right away. I don’t care if they could offer me a bigger fight or not. I would like to fight Usman.”
