UFC 251 will have a one of a kind main event.
Jorge Masvidal is replacing Gilbert Burns who tested positive for COVID-19. Initially, it was Usman – Masvidal that everybody wanted to see, but UFC and Masvidal couldn’t reach an agreement and therefore Gilbert got the chance.
But now when the Brazilian is out of the picture, Dana White has quickly turned heel and decided to give “The Baddest MF” all or most that he wants.
Masvidal manager Malki Kawa confirmed to Yahoo Sports that the BMF champion “is extremely happy” with the deal to fight Usman at the Flash Forum.
The details of Masvidal’s new deal are yet to be released, but we’re assuming that the majority of his demands were met by his boss.
