Speaking to The Menace and the Man Show (featuring former UFC fighter Dennis Bermudez), White addressed what could be next for Gamebred. And while a title shot against Kamaru Usman remains an option, a high-profile bout against Conor McGregor remains on the table as well.
“[Kamaru] Usman fight is the fight that makes sense,” White said initially. “It’s the fight that needs to happen if Masvidal wants a title shot. But there’s another interesting fight out there for him right now.”
When asked if that might involve McGregor, potentially on Fight Island, White called it a “very good point.”
“That’s a possibility, too,” he added.
Made-up title or not, the fight when over well with fans, and Masvidal suddenly has plenty of options before him. McGregor? Usman?
Originally, the plan was to have “Gamebred” and 170lb champ Usman throw down at UFC 252 — but those plans may have changed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
