Conor McGregor Turned Down Jorge Masvidal Because ‘He Knows I’m Going To Beat The F– Out Of Him’
Jorge Masvidal has accused Conor McGregor of ducking the ‘biggest fight in UFC history” due to fear.
This occurred over a fight on Twitter, where Masvidal claimed that McGregor was too afraid to share the octagon with him. However, ‘Gamebred’ feels this twitter feud was just a way for the Irish fight to stay in the spotlight.
“He wants to stay relevant so he takes shots, but he’s not going to fight,” Masvidal said on The MMA Hour. “The UFC has offered him this fight, as you and me both know this could be the biggest fight in UFC history, why would he not want to cash in on that paycheck?”
“Because he knows I’m going to beat the f— out of him.”
Masvidal feels as though he would permanently damage McGregors’s brand if he met him face to face in the octagon.
“I’m not a wrestler so if I beat him it really looks bad for his brand because I’m only going to beat him one way, f in his face, standing up, punching him, knocking his ass out” Masvidal continued.
“It’s not going to be good for the Conor brand or his cheap a– whiskey. So that little b– has to do what he has to do and take to Twitter and talk s–.
“But when they offer him the contract he says stupid f things that can’t happen.”
According to Masvidal, McGregor said he would be willing to do the fight if he were to cut down to lightweight, which is a class Masvidal has not competed in for seven years.
“He wants me to go down to 155, for starters, I’m not going to go down to 155 for this c– sucker, you’ve fought at 170, why am I going down to 155,” said Masvidal.
“I haven’t been in that weight class for five, six years. I can’t physically make it anywhere.”
McGregor has not fought since last July, where he suffered a broken leg during his fight with Dustin Poirier. However, according to Dana White, he should be back in autumn at the earliest.
“We’re looking at early fall, if everything goes right.”
