Jorge Masvidal Reveals He Wants To Fight Conor McGregor, Promises Violence
Jorge Masvidal has revealed he is open to a fight with Conor McGregor should he defeat Donald Cerrone on January 18.
Masvidal and McGregor have frequently interacted on social media over the last year as 'Gamebred' rose to prominence in UFC.
In an appearance on the Ariel Helwani Show yesterday, Masvidal revealed he'd be more than happy to battle with McGregor.
"Yes, I would want that fight," Masvidal said.
"It's a big money fight. It's a dude that's a two-time division champion. He has some impressive records, and he comes to fight man, so in that aspect, yes.
"And we're going to both f**king sell out wherever we're f**king fighting at, and it's going to be violence."
"(I would pick) the Conor fight because the Conor fight is not going to be there."
The 35-year-old also revealed he'll be in attendance for McGregor's fight with 'Cowboy' at UFC 246.
Masvidal went on to discuss another potential opponent, current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.

He said that should 'Notorious' not want to chase up a fight with him, then he'll turn his focus to Usman.
"But if the dude doesn't want to fight, I'm not a bully man, go do your thing. He doesn't want this? I don't give a f**k then, you don't wanna fight, you don't wanna fight. Don't flirt with me. You want it or you don't. Leave me the f**k alone if you don't. I'm gonna go take care of Usman.
"(McGregor) was talking about he wants the title fight with Usman. No, no. At (170-pounds), the way I am, I'll decide when Usman will fight, who he's gonna fight, all that s**t. Everybody knows that. (Usman) might have the fu**ing belt, but I'm the one calling the fu**ing shots."
Usman recently got under Masvidal's skin after playing down a potential fight with him.
"Eh. Who cares?" Usman said about defending his title against Masvidal.
However, the BMF champ replied to the 'Nigerian Nightmare' in typical fashion by saying he'll 'break his face.'
"When I fight Usman, I'm going to break his face," the BMF champion said. "He can't hang with me, he's too one-dimensional, he's not skilled and he sure as hell ain't tough."
Who would you like to see Masvidal face first, McGregor or Usman?
