The first thing to mention about the UFC welterweight champion matchup on Saturday, July 11 Kamaru Usman and the BMF champion Jorge Masvidal is that while Masvidal accepted the fight six days in advance, never stopped preparing for a fight in front of Usman, so we expect a great stellar clash in the UFC 251.
“It’s a short notice, because I didn’t have the contract signed, but let me tell you what: this guy was there all my training camp,” he said. Dustin Poirier in «THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas. “He was my main training partner. We probably work five weeks together. He flew fighters, the best fighters in the world «.
“The guy never stopped training,” added Poirier. “Even when the fight failed, they gave it to BurnsIt was at the end of training camp, Jorge was still in the gym every day like he was having a fight. I don’t know if he knew something we didn’t know, but the guy was at training camp the whole time and never stopped. “
That’s something to keep in mind when considering who to choose in the main fight card event. UFC 251 Saturday of “Fight Island”.
While Masvidal He could be better prepared than originally thought, it’s hard to say that preparation will benefit him in this fight. Masvidal replaces the original opponent of UsmanGilbert Burns, in what for many is great news thinking that Masvidal was the rival that people wanted to see before Usman.
Usman I might not have had as much time as Masvidal to prepare for this fight, but his style is designed to soften any opponent. I think the champion’s fighting skills and endless cardio will take the day.
Usman will probably test his attack on Masvidal, but if you find that you don’t like it, I think you will not waste time making the transition to a heavy fighting game and will seek to keep Masvidal, who is one of the best boxers in MMA, on the mat.
