Daniel Cormier has sounded off about the situation that Jorge Masivdal finds himself in.
The title contender is just days away from challenging UFC welterweight champ Kamaru Usman in the headliner of the UFC 251 pay-per-view event.
The former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion spoke to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani about how Masvidal has found himself in a “no-lose situation” (via BJPenn.com).
“He’s on a six days notice in a fight where he is a 3-to-1 dog. But, even if it wasn’t six days notice, he probably would still be about a 3-to-1 dog,” Daniel Cormier said on DC & Helwani on ESPN. “So, it’s like everything is salvaged. He gets to fight the fight with Usman, if he wins, his legend will go to heights that could never have been imagined. But, if he loses, oh well he took the fight on six days notice. What is he supposed to do, Usman has been in camp ready to fight. They have truly created a no-lose situation for Jorge Masvidal. Now, Jorge is the guy that stepped up. Jorge stepped up.”
Cormier will fight Stipe Miocic with the heavyweight title on the line at the UFC 252 pay-per-view event on August 15th.
