If the stats are to be trusted, the odds are favoring Kamaru Usman in the upcoming rematch against Jorge Masvidal on April 24, 2021 at VyStar Veteran’s Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla.
Dana White gave the news on Monday that the UFC Welterweight title is on the line and Usman, the current champion will defend it against Masvidal at UFC 261. This will be a rematch of their UFC 251 encounter in which Usman was declared winner unanimously.
“The Baddest Motherf*cker” in the sport, Jorge Masvidal, back then stepped up to the challenge at a mere 6 days notice to replace Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for Covid-19. Jorge has been hibernating since then, while Usman was busy defeating Burns by a TKO in the third round at UFC 258 in February.
As per SportsBetting.ag, Usman is clearly a favorite, he opened on Monday as a -350 while Masvidal is at +285, an underdog.
