Kamaru Usman set for ‘biggest, baddest opponent’ Jorge Masvidal

Kamaru Usman

Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman says Jorge Masvidal is the ‘biggest, baddest’ opponent he’s ever faced as he prepares to defend his crown at UFC 251 in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.

The Nigeria-born champion has won all 11 bouts in the UFC, with a solitary loss from 16 MMA outings. However, Masvidal comes into the clash on the back of a standout 2019, where he chalked up three victories and entered the record books by recording the fastest knockout in UFC history – five seconds.

“At the end of the day, Masvidal is the biggest, baddest opponent that I have ever faced up to this date,” he said during the virtual media day early on Friday.

“They’re supposed to make a big deal out of that because he’s no slouch. I know that he’s tough. I know that he presents a different challenge, but that’s my job. That’s why I’m a champion. That’s why I’m on top.
