Conor McGregor Branded A 'Sissy' By Jorge Masvidal Ahead Of Nate Diaz Fight

Jorge Masvidal has branded UFC rival Conor McGregor a "sissy" and has vowed to "take the head" of the Irishman if they meet inside the octagon.

The UFC star, 34, will return to action on 2nd November at UFC 244 in New York City against Nate Diaz.

And Masvidal opened up about the prospect of fighting Irish MMA superstar McGregor after his blockbuster clash with Diaz.

UFC president Dana White had previously suggested that a showdown between Masvidal and McGregor would end up with a "murder charge."

White stood between Masvidal and Diaz at the press conference and 'Gamebred' acknowledged the comments made by the UFC president in his response to a potential McGregor fight.

"The man right here said I'm too much man for that dude, so don't bring that dude up in my interviews anymore," he said.

"He already said it himself, so that fight is not available."

McGregor, who has hinted at a UFC return in December, hasn't fought inside the octagon since his stunning loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 last October.

The 31-year-old 'Notorious' has entered into a heated rivalry with Dustin Poirier, who suffered defeat at the hands of UFC lightweight champ Khabib earlier this month.

Masvidal has made it clear that he plans to "take everybody's head that's attached to a belt" if he beats Diaz in November.

He continued: "If somebody says they have a belt, I'm coming for it and if it's any one of those two sissies, they're gonna get it."

White has insisted that it was important to let the fight between Masvidal and Diaz take place first before UFC pushed ahead a contest between 'Gamebred' and McGregor.

He said: "Let this fight happen. I don't know, let's see how this works out."

The UFC boss also said during a Twitter Q&A on Thursday that McGregor could make his return in 2019, but only if he plans to feature on the UFC 245 card in Las Vegas.

He said in response to a question: "I'm sure you saw his tweet.

"Conor wants to fight on December 14 in Dublin, but we have a fight in Vegas

"So if he doesn't fight on that card, he will fight early next year."

Should UFC book Masvidal vs McGregor?
