The third number of the UFC welterweight rating, Jorge Masvidal, who refused the title match with Kamaru Usman due to unsatisfactory financial conditions, is ready to return to lightweight and challenge Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“If they pay me as much as I stand, I’ll go down lightweight to fight Habib,” a former street fighter said in an interview posted on his Youtube channel. “I like what he does. He is undefeated, and is one of the best lightweights. I respect Habib as a competitor and more. I like the way he behaves. He does not need to chat with his tongue in order to promote the battle. If he doesn’t like someone, this is understandable without an ostentatious treshtok, which, by the way, I hate ”
“I also like his fighting style – he always tries to finish his rivals. Many people think that I do not like wrestlers, but this is complete nonsense. I like wrestling and grappling – I don’t like when they try to blanket an opponent with the help of wrestling without making attempts to end the fight ahead of schedule. Habib, on the other hand, defeats opponents in the stalls and tries to carry out painful and suffocating. I love it. ”
