The New Promo For Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal is a Must-See

It hasn't taken the UFC long to put together a promo for Saturday's new headliner between Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal, and it's a doozy.

The UFC is well accustomed to working on the fly, and following the short-notice change to Saturday’s headliner, the promotion’s already shared out a new promo.

Now does that mean it’s not good? No. No, it doesn’t.

Check out the new promo for Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal

As you’ve almost certainly heard by now, Jorge Masvidal has been tapped to fight welterweight champ Kamaru Usman at UFC 251. The late change has been made on account of Gilbert Burns testing positive for COVID-19.
