It was the fight the MMA world wanted to see, and finally, after it first appeared that the bout between Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal wouldn't take place at UFC 251, the fight is ON, and the anticipation is rising.
Reigning UFC welterweight champion Usman is the class of the UFC's 170-pound division. He has lost just once in his entire career and is undefeated in the UFC.
The man known as "The Nigerian Nightmare" captured the title with a stunning performance against Tyron Woodley, then defended the belt with a brilliant fifth-round stoppage of trash-talking rival Colby Covington at UFC 245 last December.
Can we all just appreciate this promo. It's like the most badass movie trailer. Who isn't hyped right now?
