The big day has arrived. This Saturday, July 11, the UFC welterweight champion , Kamaru “The Nigerian Nightmare” Usman, will seek to defend his belt against Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal, in the main event of UFC 251. If the Latino raises his hands and take the title from the Nigerian, the biggest fight in UFC history could be made.
However, there are many reasons to believe that McGregor hasn’t hung up his gloves forever. The possibility of the Irishman competing in such a massive fight with Masvidal, as well as winning a third championship in three different weight classes, could be enough for the Irishman to enter the Octagon once again.

The styles make matchups, and Masvidal and McGregor have a fighting style that, when combined, guarantees fireworks. Both fighters are deadly and dynamic strikers, which in itself would create quite a stir.
Also, both men are good trash talkers and know how to sell a fight. The number of verbal blows thrown at each other could be historic in its own right, and verbal violence would likely catapult the fight into unprecedented pay-per-view purchases.
