UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal is being planned for International Fight Week in Las Vegas.
According to Masvidal, he thinks he’s the A-side of this fight despite going up against the champ.
“I’m the alpha and the omega. If ‘A’ stands for alpha, then yeah, I’m the A-side times ten. Who the f*ck is Usman?”
“You would think any champion would want to fight the fighter of the year in their weight class to extra prove something, to set themselves aside. This guy wants to fight a guy under me that he already beat, or if not, do fantasy match-ups, the guys in the Japan or other organizations. If that doesn’t let you know what’s going to happen, nothing will. He knows the formula. He knows about me very well. So, there’s a hundred other people he’d rather fight than me.”
Fight Week is currently scheduled for July 7 to July 12, so this fight will likely headline a UFC pay-per-view at T-Mobile Arena on Saturday, July 11.
