UFC 251: ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ takes on the ‘BMF Champion’


NEW DELHI | JULY 11, 2020:

Jorge Masvidal and Kamaru Usman are both set to fight it out at the main event of the Yas Island UFC 251.

The championship clash became official after both fighters made weight on Friday. Both fighters have traded barbs all week since the rumours of Gamebred being the replacement.

Usman promised to be his moniker of 'The Nigerian Nightmare.' He also stated that he doesn't see any faces and that he would vow discipline to whoever stands across him.

The BMF Champion, on the other hand, promised to "baptize his opponent and send him to another planet." It seems like Masvidal has a huge task ahead of him if he is to become a champion.

If Masvidal wins, it will have to be early. He must ensure that 'The Nigerian Nightmare' doesn't settle into the contest.

However, the champion will be aware of the threat and could look to avoid or swiftly counter any speedy opening.

In going for a flying knee, Masvidal could find himself pinned to the canvas in mere seconds. However, he knows that he just needs to land one 'super necessary' shot before piling on the pressure.
