If masvidal doesn't take this fight. He's scared. Everything he says he's about is here for the taking. Since he trumped up. I think he's gone commercialized. Gambred, take the fight or admit you want no part of the champ or that chump covington.

When it comes to being considered the greatest I don't think skill translates well into that conversation. For instance, for me I believe Jose aldo is the greatest featherweight of all time based on what he achieved during his reign on top. Holloway may have shown to be more skillful but not the greatest. GSP vs Usman would be a tossup fight if they fought today and that's with GSP coming out of retirement so I don't even think Usman's skills are that far above GSP's if at all. But his greatness as a champ is not GSP level just yet. He's on the way but you're looking at no missteps for another few years. And that's tough.

People with high iq (small percentile) love kamaru usman for his skills and dominance, even tho his head shaped weird and he can’t trash talk. Low iq people (vast majority of mma fans) love masvidal because he says “iz da ressureshion n ima baptize dis foo” and “2 piece n a biscuit pop pop supa necessaerey” and then the fans go wild

Kamaru and Colby was a great fight, Usman vs Masvidal not so much. I'd love to see Colby get the rematch but first he needs to get a quick win. Him vs Masvidal definitely has a good story. I say Colby would take it, but who knows. It's still fighting and all it takes is one punch. Colby vs Masvidal, lets make it happen.

It was all set up by Dana. The call out and the reply. It's all for the show. Nobody want to see that fight again. Dana thinks it will give his failing show the boost that it needs. But this is the most boring matchup in MMA. I think Usman is going along with it in order to duck the Covington rematch.

the top three welterweights in the world right now vs gsp in his prime….he would lose in my opinion. the game changes these fighters now are well versed in every aspect of the game. Gsp is part of the reason the game is where it’s at a true pioneer of being well rounded but those are different animals then what he fought.

Usman is trying to get the big money fights against the 2 guys he already defended his belt against. Logically speaking, Leon Edwards should be next but he's not a draw. And the only person at the top who Usman hasn't fought yet is Thompson. Those 2 should be the next ones in line for a title shot. Either Wonderboy next and Edwards vs Damien Maia or Edwards next and Wonderboy vs either Maia, Burns, or Masvidal

The reason he is calling out Masvidal is because it’s the easiest fight for him I don’t see him calling out Coby because that was his toughest fight and he is the number one contender. Why the UFC don’t dictate who he should fight, we all want him to run it back with Coby including Dana.

There’s a difference between the best of all time (skills) and the greatest of all time (titles). Skill wise Usman is probably the best WW of all time but he’s got a long way to go before we can call him the greatest

I don't get this thing that Usman wants masvidal because its the biggest fight , no , Usman wants masvidal because its easier than Colby same as Jorge he would rather lose to Usman again in a championship fight than lose to his old friend Colby , Usman is not scared of Colby but we know that Jorge kinda is , Colby is the biggest fight for both fighters idc how many people hates him everyone loves a Colby fight and i think people are more interested in Usman vs Colby both equally as skilled and the top 2 guys at WW where as Masvidal really dont have anything for Usman to worry about , we the fans should get Usman vs Colby 2 or at least Usman vs Stephen Thompson before Usman vs Masvidal 2 Stephen thompson and colby deserves another title shot

I agree with DC here the game has changed and evolved a lot. Different Beasts today. That being said Usman still needs a few defenses and calling out somebody you already beat is just soft. That fight goes the same way every time. I want him vs thompson and rematch vs Covington. Maybe throw Edwards in there depending on his next fight. If he wins those i dont mind putting him in the Goat conversation

I love both these fighters, but I have no interest in this rematch. Masvidal is a great fighter, and a lot of fun, but he is very overrated right now. He is top 5 in the division, but he isn't the number 1 contender. Usman should fight the winner of Leon Edwards and Chimiav.

Usman will loose eventually. Moral of the fighting story is everyone gets touched. Calling out Jorge after beating him easily says he loosing his edge. Colby gonna beat him next time he got careless and tired at the end. Usman a good story but he can’t sell fights and nobody really cares if he wins or looses

Can't blame Usman for getting that money vs. Masvidal. That fight is probably 2x more profitable in PPV points than any other available fight, and these guys have to make as much money as possible in a pretty narrow window of time. The only one making Mayweather money from UFC fights is Dana.
