Masvidal Slams Diaz After Recent Brawl

Jorge Masvidal hit out Nate Diaz after their recent brawl. 

The brawl took place following their last presser ahead of their July 6 boxing fight. It is a rematch of their UFC 244 fight, which Masvidal won in 2019. Both men have limited boxing experience. Masvidal’s only boxing fight was in 2005 when he won a majority decision against Joseph Benjamin.

Diaz made his boxing debut last year, losing to Jake Paul in a unanimous decision. The build-up for the Diaz-Masvidal fight spiralled out of control. Once the presser finished, Diaz refused a face-off, choosing to walk off. Then someone from Diaz’s entourage threw a punch at Masvidal, and a brawl broke out. Masvidal had plenty to say. 

“I’ve lost all respect for him. He had his gimps attack my coach, who is almost 50 years old, he’s not a pro fighter…you know that’s my coach and you had your two gimps attack him. One is a pro fighter and the other one is a punk-a** 20-year-old. I don’t even have words for it, he’s just a coward who took off, you let your people get mopped up

“None of my guys went to the hospital, those boys were all f***ed up. To me, he’s a coward of a general. To lead his people into battle and then to take off running like that, attacking my coach, it was all pre-meditated…it just shows me the level of coward that he is. I used to have respect for him when I didn’t know him that well, but now that I know him pretty well, this guy’s just a f***ing coward, straight-up. He might be tough, can take a hit, has good endurance, but he’s a f***ing coward,” Masvidal said

Masvidal then directed his attention at Chael Sonnen’s draw with Anderson Silva in their boxing exhibition. Under the rules, knockdowns were not allowed. Sonnen was displeased about not getting the decision win. However, he called out Masvidal for a boxing fight in his post-fight comments. Masvidal is open to fighting, provided it is sanctioned as a professional boxing bout.

“The fight wasn’t the best obviously. Chael is f*cking trash. I know I’m supposed to sell the fight, say ‘Oh you know, it’s going to be a great fight’, but Chael is f*cking trash man. This motherf*cker is when you leave the trash can open and water gets into there, and it’s like liquid trash water… That’s what Chael is bro. He’s just trash.

“But, I wouldn’t mind driving my knuckles through his face for a nice paycheck and breaking his eye orbital. I would just be doing everybody a f*cking favor… He knows I’m not coming for an exhibition match. If there’s one thing he knows, it’s that I’m going to break his f*cking face. So if after I knock out Nate and I have downtime and s*it, I wouldn’t mind busting up Chael… He looks like a full-blown lesbian right now… But if this dude wants it, I’ll get him before he fully transitions,” Masvidal added
