It seems like a Kamaru Usman-Jorge Masvidal rematch could be in the works soon.
On Saturday, Usman made quick work of Gilbert Burns after he KOed Burns in the second round of their fight at UFC 258.
After the fight, Usman immediately called out Masvidal, who had decided to take a fight against the UFC Welterweight champion on short notice and felt he could have done better with a full training camp.
Usman calls out Jorge Masvidal at the end of his interview. Oh man, that’s a gift for Masvidal. That’s his preferred fight, too, of course.
“I’ll give you a whole training camp. I guarantee you won’t sign on that dotted line. I’ll finish your ass. Step in her and see me."

Masvidal’s agent Malki Kawa immediately accepted Usman’s offer.
Let’s do It. TUF. Masvidal vs usman. We accept.

Dana White seemed intrigued by the idea of a Masvidal-Usman rematch.
Dana White says Usman has a lot of options and if he wants the fight with Masvidal, he knows Masvidal wants the rematch and he thinks the fans would probably want it too.
