“He don’t want the fight so I don’t give a f*ck no more,” Masvidal said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show (via Jed Meshew of MMA Fighting). “I’m moving on from that fight. This dude didn’t want the fight. I’m not here to bully. I guess it’s Usman’s head. He sealed Usman’s fate now.”
Masvidal would still like to face McGregor, but the list of his potential opponents is down to just two.
“That’d be good too, if Conor wanted to do that,” Masvidal said. “One of these two guys is gonna have to scrap with me. I’m leaning right now towards Usman, the way he’s been talking, the sh*t he’s been saying, but if Conor wants it, we’ll get it done. It won’t be hard to get it done but I’m not going to sit here and entertain bullsh*t and stuff, you know? I just want to scrap.”
The UFC Welterweight Champion recently stated that Masvidal was trying to avoid him, but that doesn’t appear to be the case anymore.
