Conor McGregor offered 'biggest fight in UFC history' with Jorge Masvidal but fears he'd have 'f*** beaten out of him'

JORGE MASVIDAL has accused Conor McGregor of snubbing the 'biggest fight in UFC history" out of fear.

The fan favourites have recently found themselves embroiled in a war of words on Twitter after Masvidal claimed the Irishman was too afraid to share the octagon with him.



McGregor, 33, didn't take too kindly to the verbal jab and immediately hit back on Twitter, an act Gamebred believes was a bid to stay at the forefront of fight fans' minds.

During an appearance on The MMA Hour, Masvidal said: "He wants to stay relevant so he takes shots, but he’s not going to fight.

"The UFC has offered him this fight, as you and me both know this could be the biggest fight in UFC history, why would he not want to cash in on that paycheck?

"Because he knows I’m going to beat the f*** out of him."

BMF titleholder Masvidal believes he'd do irreparable damage to McGregor's global brand if the UFC brass put him in the octagon with their poster boy.

He continued: "I’m not a wrestler so if I beat him it really looks bad for his brand because I’m only going to beat him one way, f in his face, standing up, punching him, knocking his ass out.

"It’s not going to be good for the Conor brand or his cheap a** whiskey.

"So that little b**** has to do what he has to do and take to Twitter and talk s***.

"But when they offer him the contract he says stupid f things that can’t happen."

Two-time welterweight title challenger Masvidal claims McGregor is willing to fight him if he cuts down to lightweight – a weight class he hasn't competed in for over SEVEN years.

He said: "He wants me to go down to 155, for starters, I’m not going to go down to 155 for this c***sucker, you’ve fought at 170, why am I going down to 155?

"I haven’t been in that weight class for five, six years I can’t physically make it anywhere.”

Former two-division champion McGregor is currently recovering from the horrific broken leg he suffered in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier.

The Notorious is seemingly close to being medically cleared, although UFC president Dana White expects him to be back in action in the autumn at the earliest.
