Is Iman Kawa’s former partner Jorge Masvidal looking to shift his weight class?
Iman Kawa’s former partner Jorge Masvidal currency competes in the welterweight division but he is hungry for more wins. As things stand now, UFC President Dana White is looking to set up Masvidal against Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. After that, he might consider moving to the lightweight category to set himself up against the likes of Khabib Nurmagomedov. Masvidal has said that he is open to shifting his weight class as long as he can reap some financial benefits from it. Speaking about the matter on his YouTube channel, Iman Kawa’s former partner said:
“The money is gonna talk man, 155(pounds) is such a battle. Once I’m at around 172-173 pounds I’m at around 5% body fat already, 6% body fat. I don’t have a lot of room to play with and still get to 155. It’s a lot of water.”
Jorge Masvidal currently weighs in at 170 lbs and as he stated, there isn’t a lot of fat content in that weight. Losing 15-20 lbs of water + muscle mass will be difficult without compromising on strength. However, Masvidal believes that he is ready to make the change and beat anybody if he is rewarded well.
“At 155 it’d be a little different. But that’s not to say that I couldn’t win and that I couldn’t make the weight. I would just have to be rewarded so m***********g handsomely for me to drop down to 155 and compete with anybody. I would love to do it,” Masvidal signed off.
