UFC President Dana White, when asked about Jorge Masvidal being a future opponent for McGregor, would say that Masvidal may be too big for McGregor.
“Masvidal is too big for him,” White said during the UFC 240 post-fight press conference (via Simon Samano of MMA Junkie). “I think Masvidal is too big. Conor disagrees, so Conor was not happy that I said that Masvidal was too big for him.”
McGregor, who has competed at welterweight before, apparently wasn’t happy with what was said by White.
White says that while McGregor was mad about said comments, but it also confirmed to White that McGregor is willing to fight anyone.
“‘That pisses me off that you said he’s too big for me (McGregor said to White),'” White said. “I’ve said it a million times, and I’ll say it again: This guy will fight anybody, and I don’t care if he’s pissed off about it or not. I think that Masvidal is too big for Conor. So, if we ever get to that point, I’m sure it’s something Conor and I will fight about.”
Masvidal has expressed interest in fighting McGregor in the past, but nothing has been made official at this time.
