Interestingly, Doc was expecting Jorge Masvidal to shock the world and Kamaru Usman at UFC 261:

However, Kamaru Usman proved his worth as one of the most active and dominant UFC fighters at the moment. He not only defeated Jorge Masvidal in just two rounds, but did so with a nerve-wrecking punch. Many were assuming that the champion will use his wrestling to win the fight, but to their surprise, he just beat Masvidal at his own game.

Dr Disrespect claims Kamaru Usman hit Jorge Masvidal with the ‘perfect strike’

Despite rooting for Jorge Masvidal, the Two Time humbly accepted that he had underestimated Kamaru Usman. As a long time patron of the sport, he could not resist praising the Nigerian Nightmare.

Soon after the fight, Doc termed Kamaru’s right jab as the perfect strike:

Even though the former Twitch streamer might have lost some money, it is safe to assume he enjoyed UFC 261. The event comprised a plethora of shocking moments and dominant performances by Kamaru Usman and Valentina Shevchenko. On the flip side, Rose Namajunas knocked Weili Zhang in Round 1 to become the new UFC Women Strawweight champion.

Will we ever see Doc in the boxing ring?

Ever since Logan Paul and KSI fought each other, we’ve seen many content creators trying their luck in combat sports. Logan Paul’s brother, Jake Paul, has become a professional boxer now, as he recently knocked out former UFC star Ben Askren in 20 seconds.

During a conversation with CouRage and Zlaner, Doc had also opened up on stepping inside the boxing ring. True to his nature, he made fun of Nickmercs, TimTheTatman, and Cloakzy when asked about fighting them. Regardless, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Doc follows the lead of other content creators and showcases ‘Violence.Speed.Momentum’ in an actual boxing fight.
