Jorge Masvidal… How do you like your humble pie?
Prior to his welterweight title fight against champion Kamaru Usman at UFC 261 last weekend, Masvidal was captured on camera slating his opponent’s punching power.
That would have been all well and good had Usman not have knocked Masvidal clean out inside the fight’s opening 10-minutes.
Usman’s knockout was so clean that Masvidal was out cold before he’d even hit the canvas – in fact, UFC 261’s main-event was the first time in his pro career that Masvidal had ever been sparked.

Now, check out what the title challenger said in the lead-up to the fight.
