the weight champion UFC welterweight has been campaigning for a fight against Canelo inside the ring for some time now. However the UFC president Dana White seems reluctant to try to make such a fight happen.

In an interview with The MMA Hour recently, Usman’s two-time opponent, Jorge Masvidal, offered his thoughts on the situation. “Gamebred” is confident that if Usman and Álvarez ever fought each other, the UFC champion would feel “embarrassed” by the Mexican star.

Masvidal does not trust Usman at all on the boxing issue

“CrI wish Canelo embarrassed him. I know Usman could have that right hand on my stuff, but that’s because takedowns helped set that up.. In boxing, there are no takedowns. Usman has no speed or reflexes. He has improved a lot more than when he started, but I think it would be like the worst stylistic matchup for him,” Masvidal said.

Canelo can fight inside, he sees, he can slide and he has incredible powerHe doesn’t get tired in fights. I just don’t see the outcome (going) well for Usman.” Usman currently dominates the UFC’s welterweight division. “The Nigerian Nightmare” has never lost inside the octagon thus far.

I and Masvidal have fought under the UFC banner twice, with their first meeting in July 2020 at UFC 251. Masvidal took the fight on short notice, losing the fight via unanimous decision. In their rematch in April the following year, the fight was over much more quickly, with Usman scoring a second-round knockout. Currently, Usman has successfully defended his welterweight title five times.
