Manager Abraham Kawa reveals Jorge Masvidal already in camp, training for next fight

Recommended Posts

According to Abraham Kawa, Jorge Masvidal already has his next fight lined up.

While Kawa wouldn’t reveal who Masvidal (35-13 MMA, 11-4 UFC) will be facing next, he did say his client is already in training camp and is waiting for an official date to be confirmed.

“He definitely wants to fight somebody,” Kawa told MMA Junkie Radio. “That person, we’re all going to find out shortly. I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say Jorge has been a man of his word since I’ve known him; he’s never lied or said something, then something else happened. He’s not that kind of guy. When he says, ‘This is what I want, this is what I want to do,’ that’s what happens. He gave somebody his word, so we’ll see. I can’t say too much now, but it’s going to be fun.”

“Jorge’s in camp, he’s training, he’s ready to rock and roll, so we’re looking forward to fight.  Whether it’s in July or a little bit later, that’ll be fine, too, but he’s absolutely ready to rock and roll.”

Dana White clarifies on Jorge Masvidal: Kamaru Usman fight No. 1, but Conor McGregor possible

UFC president Dana White recently teased that Masvidal’s next fight may not be against UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. Kawa didn’t confirm or deny that claim but is confident that the “BMF” champion holds all the cards at welterweight and the division runs through him.

“Jorge has the one title, the one thing that nobody else has,” Kawa said. “I don’t care if you’re Conor (McGregor), if you’re Henry (Cejduo), if you’re Usman, it does not matter who you are. Nobody has that belt; that belt belongs to Jorge. He just so happens to be at 170 pounds, so if you want to fight him, I think you’ve got to come to the table with something other than ‘I’ve got this.’

“The truth is, if Jorge tomorrow wanted to drop to 155 pounds and challenge the titleholder there, he has that ability. He’s technically a champion. At 170, he can challenge the current champion. It’s really up to Jorge. I believe the division goes as Jorge goes. I don’t think anybody is clamoring to see a rematch with Usman and anybody, or Usman and the next guy. I think everybody is looking for Jorge vs. that guy.”
