Jorge Masvidal Claims He's Got Conor McGregor Worked Out Ahead Of Potential UFC Fight
Jorge Masvidal claims to have worked out Conor McGregor ahead of a potential UFC super-fight.
Masvidal, 35, has been campaigning hard to fight McGregor who made a sensational return to the Octagon after stopping Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds at UFC 246.
The BMF champion wants McGregor next and would prefer a fight with him over the UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, but it appears the Irishman isn't interested.
And speaking on 'The Rich Eisen Show', 'Gamebred' explained why a clash between him and McGregor has not yet been booked by the UFC.
"You can't ask me that," he said. "You gotta ask Conor that... When they asked [Dana White] why the fights not happening, he said it in the nicest way possible and he said I was too much man for him.
"Meaning, I'm too much man for him. I asked this guy to fight me, you know? It is what it is."
When pressed further about a match-up with McGregor, the Miami native continued by saying: "My will, my size, my determination, mix in with I'm not a quitter, I've never tapped in my life. It's a different type of dog over here. I'm too much man for him in every way that could possibly be said.
"When I see Conor, I see a lot of holes from a technical point. If I'm a coach, and I'm advising my athlete the best way to beat this guy, I see many math scenarios there.
"I see X's and O's, I see the square root of his face times my knuckles, I see all these things constantly... Not that his game is not good because his game is great but when I do the math, and I see the numbers in my head and I do the math, I lean towards me very heavy."
Masvidal beat Nate Diaz at UFC 244 to become the BMF champion in his most recent fight as he targets a summer return following a scintillating 2019.
