UFC president Dana White thinks a battle between the welterweight champion and the “BMF” of the division could be a major event.

After watching Kamaru Usman defend his title against Colby Covington on Saturday in the main event of UFC 245, White believes a bout between Usman and Jorge Masvidal is worth making.

“It’s massive,” White said at the UFC 245 post-fight press conference. “So think about this: How many times have we sat in this room, we did the lead-up to this big grudge match, these two guys hate each other going into the fight, and then I’m sitting here going, ‘And that fight sucked.’ How many grudge matches have actually been incredible fights? I say none. Maybe one I’m forgetting about, but they all pretty much suck.

“This grudge match was awesome, two guys in their prime who are at the top of the game, and the fight was the “Fight of the Night” in an incredible card. Yeah, the Masvidal fight vs. Usman, it’s a big deal. He fought (Nate) Diaz for the ‘BMF,’ belt and now to fight for the actual title against the guy who’s tough as nails, it’s fun.”

Masvidal recently picked up the biggest win of his career, stopping Diaz at UFC 244 in November to win the first and only “BMF” title in a major event. The Miami native is a top contender in the division, and is coming off three straight stoppage wins.

For Usman, the bout with Covington marked his first welterweight title defense. Usman won the UFC belt in March, outpointing then-champion Tyron Woodley. He remains undefeated in the promotion.
