Jorge Masvidal is doing gangster things.
This coming Saturday night, Masvidal steps in on six days notice to challenge Kamaru Usman for the UFC welterweight title at UFC 251.
Masvidal is replacing Gilbert Burns, who was forced out after a positive coronavirus test.
The event marks the first of several in a row to take place this month from Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. The UFC has created a “Fight Island” atmosphere for the officials, fighters, and others to stay as healthy as possible.
