UFC 251 Stream UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman can defeat Jorge Masvidal if he avoids a stand-up fight, according to Demian Maia.
Maia is the only man to have stepped into the Octagon with both Usman and Masvidal, who will meet at UFC 251 in Abu Dhabi on Sunday local time (Saturday night in the U.S.).
The titleholder was initially scheduled to fight Gilbert Burns but the Brazilian contracted the coronavirus and was replaced by Masvidal on six days’ notice.
Maia gained a split-decision verdict against “Gamebred” after three rounds in 2017; the following year, he lost on points to Usman after 25 minutes.
He believes the “Nigerian Nightmare” has the skills required to get the better of Masvidal.
“Fights are all about styles and matchups. It doesn’t mean that if I had a difficult time with Kamaru and I won against Jorge, that the same will reflect on the fight,” Maia told TMZ Sports. “I think there’s some things that make Kamaru [the] favorite for this fight. I think he’s more well-rounded, he’s a very good wrestler and he had that full camp.
“Masvidal didn’t have this camp, he just got this fight, so that’s why I think Kamaru is the favorite.
“But MMA is a crazy sport. Even when there is a big difference it’s hard to tell who’s going to win. I think that’s what makes the sport so exciting — it’s because it’s very hard to predict fights and winners.”
