Jorge Masvidal wants a trilogy after defeating Kamaru Usman in UFC 261

It’s not an exclusive Q & A available to ESPN + subscribers. Prior to the rematch with Kamaru Usman in the welterweight championship at UFC 261 on April 24, fourth-placed welterweight Jorge Masvidal answered questions from fans.

When asked how Masvidal was different prior to his rematch with Masvidal, “Gamebread” was frank in his answer.

“I’m not going to lose 20 pounds in 6 days, mostly underwater,” Masvidal said. “This is a completely different weight loss and it will be the main deciding factor I think.”

When Masvidal first fought Usman over a welterweight strap on UFC 251 he buried Gilbert Burns, who was attacked by COVID-19, only six days ago. As a result, Masvidal needed to adjust his sleep schedule to Abu Dhabi’s time and lose weight rapidly to set a 170-pound limit.

Usman won the first match with a unanimous decision with scores of 50-45, 50-45 and 49-46.

Masvidal was also asked what it meant to win a welterweight title at UFC261.

“Everything. I put everything I have into this sport,” Masvidal said. “When I have that belt, I’ll be able to get the type of sleep I want at night.”

Another fan asked Masvidal if he would fight the welterweight champion in a trilogy, assuming Gamebread would win the rematch with “Nigeria’s Nightmare” at UFC 261.

“When I win this rematch, we will definitely go to the trilogy,” Masvidal said. I will never go down in history as one-on-one with this individual. That won’t happen. “

Not only will the UFC 261 on April 24 feature a rematch of the welterweight championship, but it’s also the first time in the United States that the UFC will be able to welcome fans to more than 15,000 sold-out venues without social distance restrictions. That is.
