Kamaru Usman will defend his UFC welterweight title this weekend against Colby Covington in a much-anticipated rematch at UFC 268. This welterweight title fight will take place at the main event in New York at the Madison Square Garden. Consequently, fight fans and analysts are very excited because this is unarguably one of the biggest fights of the year.
As we are inching closer to this event, several fighters and pundits have offered their predictions and opinions about this main event fight. Jorge Masvidal is one of the well-known personalities who has given his predictions for this fight. The former number one contender has picked Kamaru Usman to finish Covington once again at UFC 268.
While speaking at the Punching in podcast, Gamebred said that “I think who’s gonna win and who I want to win is Usman. I think the power that he showed in his last fights and the little bit of gaps that he’s been making is where Colby’s never felt comfortable and just can’t produce power.
Masvidal also took a dig at Covington and accused him of taking steroids. “He’s tried his whole life to do it, you know. He can take all the steroids he wants and he’s still not gonna have that power.” Jorge Masvidal’s prediction does not come as a huge surprise considering he has faced Usman twice and has felt the power during their rematch at UFC 261.
Jorge Masvidal claims that Colby Covington will do worse against Kamaru Usman at UFC 268
While giving his predictions for the title fight between Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington, Jorge Masvidal revealed how this fight would turn out to be. Gamebred stated that Covington is surrounded by yes men and believes that he would not do anything different against Usman in the rematch.
“I mean the team he is at right now is just a bunch of yes men. They tell him yes to whatever he says and you can tell that by the attitude and stuff. I don’t think he’s gonna do anything different. I think he’s going to get worse.
The BMF has made some bold allegations against Colby Covington in this podcast. So it will be interesting to see how Chaos responds to all these steroid claims. In the end, we will have to wait for 6th November to find out whether Masvidal’s predictions are accurate or whether we will witness a new welterweight champion.
