UFC BMF Jorge Masvidal is planning to fight in March of 2022 after recording the injury he suffered in his recent fight camp. Jorge Masvidal was scheduled to fight top UFC welterweight contender Leon Edwards at UFC 269 but just one month before the fight Masvidal pulled out due to an injury that he suffered during his training for this fight. Now Jorge Masvidal opened up about what exactly went down during his training camp for this fight and what he has planned ahead and the opponents he would love to fight when he is fully recovered.
“(It was) a good injury,” Masvidal said on The MMA Hour. “A good injury happened. I don’t think I’ve ever signed a bout agreement and pulled out ever. In my whole history in the UFC, this is my first time. I don’t want to discuss the actual injury that I got. It should impact me for five to six weeks. The reason is that I never discuss my injuries online is, why? Why am I going to give info out on myself?”
“I told the UFC that we could push it back further,” Masvidal said. “It’s up to Leon, and from his initial response, he doesn’t want to wait and I don’t blame him. If he has an option to fight for a title or wait two more months for me, I don’t know what he wants to do or nor do I give a f*ck. All I know is if he wants to go February or March, we can go. If he doesn’t want to wait, then he’s onto the next thing.”
Leon Edwards after Masvidal pulled out said that he knew Jorge wouldn’t fight him. He also stated that he has no plans for Masvidal instead he will be eyeing for the title shot. Jorge is definitely not happy to see Leon not ready to fight him in March.
“If [Edwards] says no, then I’m going to pass, then Colby’s b*tch-ass it is,” Masvidal said on The MMA Hour… “I’m coming off two losses, I’ve got to make sure I go in there healthy and well to give him my all. If he wants to wait until Feburary or March, I can decapitate him on site for the world to see. If he doesn’t, what can I do? We will meet eventually.”
