Jorge Masvidal Calls Out Conor McGregor, Wants To "Break His Face"
Jorge Masvidal has called out Conor McGregor in brutal fashion following his destructive knockout of Ben Askren at UFC 239.
Fresh off scoring the fastest knockout in UFC history, Masvidal's campaigning for a shot at UFC gold.
But he'd settle for payday against Conor McGregor who hasn't fought inside the Octagon since his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018.

"Definitely the title, definitely Kamaru Usman interests me," Masival said. "He's got the title and that's what I want but he's always having injuries and things are happening.
"Another guy that interests me because it's just a fight that if we made it, it's going to sell a lot and I'm going to get the money that I deserve and you can see you put me in there in a fight and I'm going to fight. I'm going to give you what the fans. I've never pulled out of a fight.
"I want [Conor] McGregor. I want to break his face. I think that's an easy paycheck. He's got these cash symbols written all over his face for me. I just don't see it going his way if I'm honest with you.
"He backs down. He taps. I've never tapped in my whole entire career," Masvidal said about the Irishman.
"He's tapped a couple times so that's backing down in my book. It's something I've never done and I feel like I'd break him. It would be an easy fight.
"It just means more money, more fans and then fight for the title. Either one of them makes sense to me."
McGregor continues to flirt with a return to the UFC. He took to social media to post a cryptic message regarding his fighting career.
"I'd tell you I'm done but you wouldn't believe me," he wrote on Twitter.

Masvidal, meanwhile, is on a stunning two-fight win streak which includes scalps over Darren Till and, of course, Askren.
