Michael Bisping and Jorge Masvidal seem to have no love for each other as the two UFC fighters got into a heated confrontation for the second time this week. The second verbal altercation took place while they bumped into each other at Stewart Hotel NYC.
The two have been taking shots at each other for quite some time now ever since the UFC Middleweight champion disrespected Cuban fighter Yoel Romero after his loss to Robert Whittaker, by tearing off a tiny Cuban Flag. Masvidal, who is partly Cuban as his father is from Cuba, took this very seriously.
It is believed that the video of the two fighters clashing, that was uploaded by Masvidal’s manager Abraham Kawa is a promotional push to promote an upcoming documentary featuring Masvidal. Whether, it’s a promotional push or not the two seems to have no respect for each other and wouldn’t mind locking horns inside the Octagon.
Bisping will defend his middleweight title against the returning legend Georges St Pierre in a super fight at UFC 217. Masvidal on the other hand will go head to head with Stephen ‘WonderBoy’ Thompson in a welterweight clash.
It’s highly unlikely that the two fighters will fight due to the weight difference and also for the fact that Masvidal is nowhere near getting a shot at Bisping’s title. But if Bisping loses his title this weekend to GSP, then it will be easier for the UFC to set up match between the two warriors.
