Jorge Masvidal said he's crushed to let his supporters down after losing to Kamaru Usman in the UFC 251 main event, but he intends to bounce back and earn a rematch.
Masvidal refused to make excuses for his unanimous decision defeat to Usman in Saturday's welterweight title headliner at Flash Forum in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. He took the fight on six days' notice and had to endure a sizable weight cut and a large amount of travel to get into the octagon, and although he said some of those elements may have played a factor, he doesn't point to them as the reason he lost.

Kamaru Usman played to his strengths against Jorge Masvidal and it led to the retention of his UFC welterweight title.
Usman stayed perfect in the UFC and outworked Masvidal for a unanimous decision. Usman took a pair of 50-45 scores and a 49-46 on the judges' cards thanks in large part to his control in the final four rounds - though Masvidal defended more takedowns than he fell victim to. In all, Usman landed five takedowns and had more than 10 minutes of control time in the 25-minute fight.
Masvidal took the fight on short notice after original title challenger Gilbert Burns had to...
