‘Gamebred’ has revealed why he isn’t fighting Conor McGregor… The Notorious won’t like his reason…
Jorge Masvidal has had an exceptional 2019. He’s coming off of the back of two insane knockouts. First of all, he annihilated Darren Till in London, in enemy territory. Even more impressive was the second. He landed a flying knee on Ben Askren’s chin in just four seconds, sending the former ONE champion into oblivion.
Now he’s getting ready to take on Nate Diaz in Madison Square Garden. It’s one of the most fan-friendly match-ups of the year and every MMA fan is excited. Who cares if it isn’t a real title? We just want to see the carnage.
In the past, Masvidal was linked to a fight with Conor McGregor, but that fight definitely won’t happen now. ‘Gamebred’ has revealed the reason why the two men won’t be fighting. In short, it’s because the UFC doesn’t want to have a murder charge on their hands. You can bet that ‘The Notorious’ will have something to say about that.

Masvidal made it very clear that he wants to continue his career with a clear conscience. Hence, that won’t be possible if he has to kill somebody. Furthermore, he also doesn’t want to spring any inconveniences on the UFC. They probably wouldn’t appreciate the legal problems that could arise out of him removing Conor McGregor from this reality. He told media:
“That fight… the president deemed it not good because they won’t a murder charge on them. They’re not going to allow that to happen. The president himself already said, so I don’t want to go to jail for killing nobody. It’s not what I want to do. I’m here to compete and to keep beating people up.”
Isn’t that nice of him?
They dress different. They talk different. But they're cut from the same cloth.

According to Masvidal, Dana White is particularly against this fight happening. Masvidal is a former street fighter and above all, he’s a wild man. No wonder the UFC wants to protect McGregor from him. ‘Gamebred’ used to train with the legendary Kimbo Slice. Despite being an MMA veteran, he’s never looked better. Masvidal continued:
“The president said we couldn’t compete because I’m too much man, so that can’t happen. We’re different spectrums. Dana White is not going to let that happen.”
I'll pay any amount of money to see

The Miami resident is set to fight Nate Diaz for the newly-minted BMF belt. The one-off title will be contested in November at UFC 244. As a result, fans are super excited about this one. Diaz and Masvidal are very similar in attitude and mentality, so you just know they’re both going to bring chaos to this event.
As you can see, Masvidal rocked up to the first press conference wearing a Tony Montana suit from the movie Scarface. That’s a pretty epic movie, to be honest. In short, this fight is already bigger than most of the title fights this year. Sometimes all you want is to watch a couple of crazy fighters just go to war. You’ve got to love it.
