With UFC 249 main event in question, Jorge Masvidal offers up services

The news that the duel between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson may not happen caught the attention of the MMA world. The reason is that the Russian won’t be able to fight in the main event of UFC 249 on April 18 because of the travel restrictions associated with the coronavirus pandemic. That way, it seems, UFC is already looking for a replacement to make the main fight at UFC 249, on April 18th. With an eye on the chance, Jorge Masvidal has already volunteered for the vacant post.

Through his social networks, the fighter wrote a post stating that he is free on the date of the fight, suggesting that UFC only needs to look for him to make it official. It is worth mentioning that the American currently plays in the welterweight division, however, he was already present in the division highlighted in his first fights in the UFC.

“I’m free on April 18th. # resurrection, ”wrote the fighter.

Jorge Masvidal occupies the third place in the ranking of welterweight and accumulates seven victories in the category, among his 12 in the UFC. In his last performance, in November 2019, the fighter knocked out Nate Diaz and won the ‘BMF’ belt. There is an expectation that with this good phase, the American will be Kamaru Usman’s next opponent for the welterweight title.
