It’s been around seven months since #9 ranked welterweight Jorge ‘Gambred’ Masvidal hasn’t stepped inside the octagon. The American top team product is not getting an opponent and is losing his patience.
“It’s (expletive) frustrating,” Masvidal (32-13 MMA, 9-6 UFC) said in a recent interview with MMAjunkie Radio. “But whatever. I’m still here, and I’m going to get in shape.”
“I’m going to get somebody at some point or another, whether it be a top-10 guy or not,” he said. “Somebody’s face is going to get dismantled.”
Masvidal has called out #8 ranked contender Neil Magny in the past and he still continues to be on Masvidal’s radar.
“The only thing he’s fighting is diabetes, but he ain’t fighting me, that skinny anorexic (expletive),” Masvidal said.
However another man on whom Masvidal would like to get his hands on is #6 ranked Kamaru Usman.
“That dude thinks he deserves a title shot beating Maia on two weeks’ notice,” Masvidal said. “Awesome for you if that’s how you think.”
“It’s funny because Usman was calling me out saying I had ducked him,” Masvidal said. “Basically, that’s calling me a coward. Now that I’m saying let’s fight, he doesn’t want to fight.
“I saw him at Colby’s fight – I thought he had two broken (hands). That guy has to be better than Wolverine because he didn’t have any cast on. So that dude is Super Marvel X. I don’t know what the (expletive) he’s made out of. You broke two hands, and you don’t have no cast on? Wow, bro. That’s super powers, for real.”
Masvidal also had some words for Maia’s performance against Usman.
“It was (expletive) a snooze-fest,” he said. “And I get it – Maia wasn’t in shape. Put this guy out of his misery. You’ve been training for a fight how long? Get this guy out of there, or at least try to. Just staring at him – this is the fight game. This is what it’s becoming. A bunch of loudmouth (expletive).”
