Masvidal: UFC Doesn’t Want A Murder On Their Hands
Don’t expect Conor McGregor to challenge for the BMF title if Jorge Masvidal wins on November 2nd at UFC 244.
On ESPN’s Get Up this week, Masvidal explained why he won’t be facing McGregor, and it’s not because he doesn’t want it.
“That fight…the president deemed it not good because they don’t want a murder charge on them,” Masvidal said in reference to UFC President Dana White thinks the weight difference between the two is too much. “They’re not going to allow that to happen.”
“The president himself already said it, so I don’t want to go to jail for killing nobody,” he said. “It’s not what I want to do. I’m here to compete and to keep beating people up.”
“The president said we couldn’t compete because I’m too much man, so that can’t happen,” Masvidal continued. “We’re different spectrums. [Dana White] is not going to allow that to happen.”
