‘Remember The Name’ walked into the octagon as #10 on the welterweight charts against #5 Stephen Thompson. However, after securing a win, he has now overtaken both ‘Wonderboy’ and ‘Gamebred’ to become the new #5 in the division. Below him is Masvidal at #6 and Muhammad took this opportunity to troll the UFC superstar.

He tweeted, “Top 5 in the world 👊🏻..how’s ur rib feeling @GamebredFighter🤔#teamfirstroundvsteamdominance”

Muhammad trolled Masvidal for his injury as ‘Gamebred’ had pulled out of a fight against Leon Edwards, citing a severe injury.

Currently, ‘Gamebred’ has suffered two consecutive losses against the undisputed welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. As a matter of fact, Jorge Masvidal (35-15) has been unable to win any bouts since 2019, where he won the BMF title against the Stockton-Native Diaz. Contrastingly, ‘Remember The Name’ is undefeated since 2019. Excluding his No-contest fight with Leon Edwards at UFC Fight Night: Edwards vs. Muhammad.
