“I’m happy for a replacement opponent” – Khabib Nurmagomedov’s coach on Kamaru Usman vs Jorge Masvidal


The MMA world will witness one of the bitterest rivalries inside the Octagon next Saturday. Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman will lock the horns with the Badfest Motherf ** ker, Jorge Masvidal.While Gilbert Burns almost reached Fight Island, he tested positive for coronavirus with two of his cornermen before boarding his plane. This unfortunate series of events dealt a severe blow to the UFC’s plans for a massive main event for a fully stacked UFC 251.

However, the arrival of “Gamebred” on the scene is a saving grace. Usman’s director Ali Abdelaziz also commented on the same thing via Twitter.

” I am happy [Kamaru Usman], for a replacement opponent and I also have a broken heart for [Gilbert Burns] the [is] candidate n ° 1 »

Ali was very excited about the fight when the UFC initially planned it. But, Jorge seemed to disagree with the UFC regarding his combat handbag. Failing to reach common ground, Jorge has declared that he will not participate in the title fight. And that’s when Burns came on the scene.

Masvidal even said he would be fine if the UFC released him from his contract. Yet he came to save the day when all hopes for a welterweight title sank into thin air following the unfortunate news about “Durinho”.

Shortly after Gilbert Burns’ disappearance, Masvidal tweeted a photo that defined his nickname, “Gamebred”. According to the definition-

Gamebred is an animal that was bred to be game.

Of course, the timing of the Tweet generated a plethora of speculation. While some thought it was just a general Tweet, others had the idea of ​​a massive main event. Well, it’s obvious that those who had this latest school of thought were right.

Masvidal and Usman have one, if not most, of the bitter rivalries in the sport. Their arguments even surfaced at SuperBowl Radio, where the two threatened each other.
