Jorge Masvidal has been eyeing for a bout with ‘The Notorious’ for a while now.The Miami native first fired shots at McGregor following his record-breaking knockout win over Ben Askren at UFC 239. Conor McGregor Looks ‘Unhinged’ In Pool Photos
He had called out the former double champ for a massive showdown for a big ticket match.
Later, during the UFC 244 post-fight press conference, Masvidal made some bold remarks about McGregor’s smaller frame. The 36-year-old stated he would put a beatdown on the star if they ever shared the octagon.
“I’ll f*** that little guy up, man. He’s a f***ing mi**et. Dana White, president of this m*********ing company said that I’m too much man for him. I get why people want to see him hurt for the stunts he’s been pulling. But he don’t want this s***. He’s just talking so that he gets his name out there.”
We will see if the bout takes place down the road when McGregor returns to the octagon next year.
Masvidal’s rep Malki Kawa said about Conor vs. Masvidal, “”Guys, stop this. Masvidal is too big for him, that’s why @danawhite never liked this fight.”
He added, “Of course, and we did when it was offered. Then they said [Conor] never responded. So don’t know what to tell you.”
