Jorge Masvidal vs Kamaru Usman at UFC 251 is DONE in most anticipated clash of 2020 at Fight Island – The Sun
THE hugely anticipated clash between Jorge Masvidal and Kamaru Usman is 'done', according to reports in the US.
The two UFC superstars are ready to meet at UFC 251 on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi next weekend.
The show was initially in chaos when Gilbert Burns tested positive for coronavirus, leaving Dana White without a headline act.
But according to UFC insider Ariel Hewani, a massive meeting between Masvidal and Usman has been negotiated.
He wrote on Twitter: "Negotiations for Usman vs Masvidal are done, per sources.
"All sides agreed to terms. Usman is en route to [Las Vegas]; Masvidal landed earlier.
"Once at the hotel, they’ll have to take a COVID test and then quarantine while awaiting results.
"If negative, they’ll fly to [Abu Dhabi] likely tomorrow."
The decision to fight marks a major U-turn for Masvidal, 35, who threatened to quit the sport earlier this year.
'Gamebred' refused a fight with Usman, wanting a bigger fee and a bigger slice of the pay-per-view takings.
The Brazilian accused the promotion of exploiting and underpaying him and other fighters.
But the welterweight – who last fought for the 'Baddest Mother F*****' belt against Nate Diaz in November – now appears to have accepted a fight with just a week's notice.
