BFM champion, Jorge Masvidal believes Kamaru Usman will beat Colby Covington in their highly-anticipated rematch at UFC 268.

Having trained with friend-turned-foe Covington for years, and having fought Usman on a couple of occasions, Masvidal is of the belief that that 'Chaos' may not have what it takes to outpoint the UFC welterweight champion. understand that Jorge Masvidal had a preference for the upcoming welterweight title clash.

"I mean (Kamaru) Usman is gonna win. My preference is Usman actually in that fight."

Covington and Usman are set to compete in a rematch at UFC 268, which is currently slated to take place on November 6.

The event is being targeted as the promotion's return to Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The pair of welterweights last fought in December 2019 and produced one of the most memorable fights of the year and it was 'The Nigerian Nightmare' who walked away victorious via a fifth-round TKO.
