BMF winner Masvidal has recently turned his focus absent from UFC champ Usman and in direction of a rematch with his most latest foe, Nate Diaz.
It’s elevated the risk that Masvidal could be set to confront Diaz in a rematch of their BMF title clash at UFC 244, the place “Gamebred” defeated Diaz via second-round TKO when the octagonside health professionals dominated a lower Diaz sustained in the course of the battle was more than enough to halt the contest.

At the time, Masvidal explained he’d give Diaz a rematch, and now it looks like the Miami fighter could be seeking to get that battle booked.
And if that transpires, Abdelaziz explained Usman would like to confront McGregor in its place.
“It looks like #1 contender would like to battle Nate Diaz now. Good for him @TheNotoriousMMA hey you want a title shot? Occur to daddy @USMAN84kg will give you 1 and he promise initially two rounds without takedowns only slaps,” he tweeted.

Welterweight champ Usman’s final outing saw him stop trash-conversing previous interim champ Colby Covington at UFC 245 final December, even though McGregor demolished Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in just 40 seconds at UFC 246 in January, also at welterweight.
McGregor recently hinted that he’s contemplating various fat lessons in a latest Instagram submit, the place he stated, “What fat up coming, who is aware of?”
Probably “The Notorious” will get the possibility to step in and battle for gold once all over again. If he does and is effective, he would turn out to be the initially 3-division winner in UFC record.
