USMAN VS MASVIDAL II
July 12, 2020, Abu Dhabi
The stage was set for these 2 competitors, Jorge Masvidal vs Kamaru Usman. Masvidal took the fight at a week's notice and the bout did not go his way. Usman completely dominated the fight by displaying heavy grappling attacks. The wrestling pressure stopped Masvidal's explosiveness and he had no answers to the takedowns.
THE NIGERIAN NIGHTMARE
Usman has to do what he did the last time but add some ground and pound at the end. He is on another level at this point. Kamaru Usman has no losses in the UFC, he has not even come close to being on the receiving end of a loss. He has an opportunity to shut down Masvidal one more time and leave no doubts. With the win over Masvidal, he would improve his winning streak to 13 wins just 3 wins shy from reaching the longest winning streak.
Jorge Masvidal is always game. We are big fans of Masvidal and he has knockout potential. He was getting better results when he was striking in the first round. His combinations were fast and accurate. Masvidal wins the fight by fighting on the outside. He was able to capture Usman with the overhand right and left hook. He was successful with the low kicks.
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT?
Masvidal is coming with pressure, fighting from the outside, and stuffing the takedowns. Usman will get frustrated with Masvidal because he has answers to the takedowns. Masvidal will shock the world with a 2nd round knockout of Usman. There we said it!
