Jorge Masvidal will be challenging for the UFC Welterweight Championship this Saturday at UFC 261. ‘Gamebred’ will be taking on dominant Champ Kamaru Usman in a rematch from their 2020 encounter.

Speaking on UFC Countdown, Masvidal said that he is no way afraid of the power on the 170lb UFC king,.

‘I definitely learned things in the first fight that I learned for the rematch” Jorge Masvidal began. “The first thing being, he hits not hard, at all. He’s one of the softest hitters I’ve ever been in front of, period.”

“God didn’t bless him with that manliness where he can hurt another man with his fists” Masvidal continued. “It must suck to live that. The game in both of us, mine is way better, in game, I mean the ability to fight through pain and fatigue. This guy is not a mean person.”
