Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal are about to engage in a massive rematch.
Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal had themselves quite a rivalry before they both took part in a fight at UFC 251 last summer. In the end, Masvidal did not have nearly enough time to prepare, which allowed Usman to take the fight with ease. A few months later, these two will be back in the Octagon again on Saturday night as they will duke it out in a rematch at UFC 261. This time around, both fighters had plenty of time to prepare and today, they took part in the ceremonial face-off.
These two fighters have been talking a whole lot of trash over these past few weeks and as you can see in some of the clips below, Usman had a good laugh while looking at Masvidal's BMF belt which is more of a novelty than anything else. Meanwhile, Masvidal claimed that should he win on Saturday, there will be a third fight between the two.
