Jorge Masvidal Says Demian Maia Turned Down Fight


Jorge Masvidal is coming off what may be the biggest win of his professional MMA career, as he defeated #5 ranked Donald Cerrone by knockout at UFC On Fox 23. With that big win under his belt, Masvidal claims that Demian Maia, as well as other fighters, have turned down fights with him.

“People are already turning fights down,” Masvida; told MMA Junkie Radio. “Demian Maia didn’t want this. They offered him the fight, and he didn’t want it. I guess he wants to sit out. So I want to fight these top-10 dudes. Give me the toughest dudes you’ve got.”

Masvidal has a little heat with fellow welterweight Neil Magny as well, whom Masvidal claims also turned down a fight with him.

“I’ll tell who you I don’t like, because when I called him out with some respectful (expletive), like, hey, your opponent fell out and I’m ready to fight, he was a coward, saying I didn’t have enough pictures on social media, and who the (expletive) am I,” Masvidal said. “And now, he’s dying to fight me – that little wimp Magny. It’s not that he turned me down – it was the way he said it. Acting like he didn’t know who I was, and now he knows who I am? Get the (expletive) out of here.”

Masvidal has earned a total of nine wins under the UFC banner and he has previously challenged for the Strikeforce Lightweight Title.
