In the wake of Masvidal's failed welterweight title bid, the MMA community is already speculating as to what will be next for him.
In a statement on Sunday by his spokesman, Lanre Lasisi, titled 'Gbajabiamila hails Kamaru Usman for defending UFC title, ' the Speaker said Usman's action had once again showed the world that Nigerians, wherever they find themselves, were capable of taking up any challenge.
However, Masvidal seemingly has no interest in this matchup. "Cause he got finished by this guy with a full training camp".
"I'm just at a level better".
With this victory, the welterweight titleholder has beaten the contenders ranked from #2 to #5 (Colby Covington, Masvidal, Leon Edwards and Tyron Woodley) in the division now. It's nowhere near as good as wrasslin' mind you, due to it having a distinct lack of Five-Star shooting presses, story angles about undead wild west morticians looking to keep their winning streak alive at an annual showdown and a complete disregard for abandoning the rules so that people can see three stages of hell Armageddon matches.
"Gamebred is the biggest, baddest dude out there right now and I had to switch gears to prepare for him on six weeks' notice.I had to make a mental switch, I prepared for Gilbert I had a completely different gameplay". He got his jaw broken, had to run out of there. I knew I had to win that last round.
"He made it tough for me in the early rounds".
"MMA is more than about the belt", Masvidal said.
EA SPORTS have officially announced UFC 4, also provided the release date for the title coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
"Definitely whoever it takes but we'll pick the right opponents", Masvidal said.
If her nose heals up quickly, Namajunas could get the next title shot at Zhang Weili, who took the belt from Andrade late past year. "And absolutely, I would like a lot more time to prepare for a guy like that and really be able to dominate in a way that I want to - picking my spots and try to get that finish standing". "I won't fight a Joe Blow or an up and comer".
