UFC 251 news: Dana White drops promo video for Kamaru Usman v Jorge Masvidal

Kamaru Usman vs Jorge Masvidal, let's go!

Kamaru Usman vs Jorge Masvidal is on.

The fight was officially confirmed last night, with Usman originally scheduled to fight Brazilian Gilbert Burns on UFC's Fight Island in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.

However, Burns tested positive for COVID-19, with Masvidal stepping in on short notice to take on the UFC welterweight champ.

It's a fight that will have fans of the sport uncontrollably excited. A bout between the pair has been long in the making, with previous negotiations breaking down over payment disputes.

But there's no turning back now and to hype up the fight just that little bit more, Dana White has now dropped the promo video.

It's one of the best we've seen and you can watch the three-minute masterpiece below.

We cannot wait for this one! It's hard to see this one not being an instant UFC classic, isn't it?

There's serious animosity between these two and they actually clashed at a pre-Super Bowl event back in January.

“Do something!” Usman shouted at Masvidal. “That’s all I hear you talking. Do something! You come up talking. Do something!”

Masvidal replied:” You got a cast on, b***h. I ain’t going to take advantage of you like that. You got a cast on b***h. You lucky. That’s the only reason nothing’s happening.”

After the incident in Miami, Masvidal told reporters, per talkSPORT: “This is directly for Usman — I’m going to embarrass you from start to finish. I’m going to say it now so when it gets replayed 10 years from now, I’ll tell you I told you so. I’m going to embarrass you.

“Whether it’s on national TV or if I see you right now here today, wherever I see you, I’m going to embarrass you for the words that you have said.”

Can Masvidal talk the talk and bring an end to the Nigerian Nightmare's reign as welterweight champion? We will finally find out on July 11!
