Jorge Masvidal says Kamaru Usman ‘crossed a line’ with ‘butthole’ comments and promises ‘very violent’ finish on Fight Island

Jorge Masvidal insists his issues with Kamaru Usman became personal when the UFC welterweight champion ‘crossed lines’ by talking about his ‘butthole’.

This time last week the BMF champion was content and happy to chill in Florida and wait for a fight opportunity to present itself before the end of the year.

However, a dramatic turn of events has seen original opponent Gilbert Burns withdraw from UFC 251 and Masvidal flown into ‘Fight Island’ on just six days notice for a world title opportunity.

At the start of the year it seemed as though this was the fight the welterweight division needed; Usman had looked utterly dominant against Tyron Woodley and Colby Covington in 2019 and ‘Gamebred’ was the hottest fighter on the roster.

With successive stoppage victories over Darren Till, Ben Askren and Nate Diaz, the 35-year-old from Miami has enjoyed the type of career revival every fighter dreams of and catapulted himself into world title contention.

It helped there was genuine needle between him and the ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ and, just days before the bout and with one final COVID-19 test to go, Masvidal reveals why he dislikes the champion so greatly.

“Like I said in the Askren fight before and after, it’s never personal. It’s always business,” he said.

“There’s just people that I probably didn’t get along too well with … But with Usman, for a fact, has crossed lines that no other competitor that I’ve fought has talked about.

“He’s talked about things he’s going to do to my butthole, which I don’t understand why he’s talking about my butthole. He’s talking about my ethnicity, whether I’m this or not. He’s telling people that I’m saying I’m God.

“You can’t find the video or a Twitter or nothing ever saying that I said I’m God. So, this guy’s just doing a lot of things that are going to cause him to get hurt in a very violent way. If the referee trips on the way to stopping me, and I get to get a couple extra, extra punches, I wouldn’t mind.”
