‪Jorge Masvidal Wants Kevin Lee Cut From The UFC For His ‘Disrespectful’ Actions After Tapping Out‬

Jorge Masvidal unleashed a rant on Kevin Lee following Saturday night's UFC after Lee attempted to continue his fight with Charles Oliveira, despite tapping out.

Lee was defeated in the third round via a guillotine choke from the Brazilian in the main event of UFC on ESPN+ 28.

But Lee attempted to continue fighting despite the tap and 'Gamebred' took to Twitter to put down the 27-year-old.

The BMF champ wrote: "You should be cut for this bi**h move. Tap and try to continue? One of the lowest things you can do h*e ass bi**h."

Masvidal then went in on 'The Motown Phenom' for missing weight by two and a half pounds leading up to the fight, calling it a 'bi**h move'.

It's unknown if Masvidal has previous with Lee but it's safe to say he wasn't a fan of his antics last night.

Following the fight, Lee explained that he 'choked himself out' in the bout.

"I mean I got choked. So, I don't know. The fight was going good. I just got choked. That's all I can.. I really can't put it on anything else but that." Lee told MMAFighting per BJPenn.com.

"The first two rounds I felt like I stuck to the gameplan and then I sat in the corner before the third and I told them I was going to switch up the gameplan.

"And, looking back on it, I admit that it was the wrong move. I tried to take control of the fight, instead of just trying to let the fight happen. So, I choked myself out."

Last night's event at the Ginasio Nilson Nelson in Brasilia, Brazil took place with no fans in attendance due to the recent COVID 19/coronavirus pandemic.

Most major sporting leagues have suspended all competition as the outbreak continues to cause chaos across the world.

However, UFC president Dana White has insisted the promotion will continue their shows unlike other major sporting leagues barring a complete government mandated quarantine.

"Unless there's a total shutdown of the country where people can't leave their houses and things like that, these fights will happen," White told ESPN SportsCenter per USA Today following last night's event.

"We're gonna move on. These guys will compete. We will find venues, and we will figure this thing out. I mean, the only thing that's gonna stop us is a complete government shutdown where everyone is confined to their homes."
