Jorge Masvidal is coming off of a stunning 5-second knockout win over former Bellator and ONE championship Welterweight champion Ben Askren at the T-Mobile Arena at UFC 239 earlier this month.
With that win, Masvidal’s profile has risen tremendously and now he wants big money to fight in the Octagon again. In fact few weeks back, he called out former two-division champion and Irish superstar Conor McGregor next.
However, UFC president Dana White wasn’t interested in this fight as he said that Masvidal was simply too big for Conor McGregor in an interview to TMZ. Now White said after UFC 240 that Conor McGregor didn’t take those statement well.
“Yeah, Masvidal is too big for him, man. I think Masvidal is too big, Conor disagrees. Conor was not happy that I said Masvidal was too big for him,” White said after UFC 240 (transcript via LowKickMMA).
“[He said] ‘That pisses me off that you say he’s too big for me.’ I’m telling you guys, I’ve said it a million times, and I’ll say it again, this guy will fight anybody,” White added when asked to elaborate. “And I don’t care if he’s pissed off about it or not, I think Masvidal is too big for Conor. So, if we ever get to that point, I’m sure it’s something that Conor and I will fight about.”
Do you guys think Jorge Masvidal is too big for McGregor?
