Masvidal capped off an incredible 2019 by stopping Nate Diaz to claim the 'BMF' title at UFC 244 and his victory appears to have lured older brother Nick out of retirement.

And according to 'Gamebred', a bout between Masvidal and Nick Diaz is in the works next with a match-up against McGregor also on the cards.

"I don't wanna sound like a bully, because since I won the Nate fight, that guy hasn't said a peep," Masvidal said about the returning Irishman.

"If that guy doesn't wanna fight, I'm not bothering anybody. Dana be having a lot of ideas all on his own. I don't know what got him to change. But the truth is that boy's [McGregor] gonna get hurt if they lock him in there with me. I'm like in segregated population, it's not the type of guy that they allow me to play with."

Masvidal also said he's more interested in fights with Nick Diaz and McGregor rather than a UFC title shot while revealing what's next for him.

"They're fighting for the spot to fight me. I'm the ticket at 170 pounds and I'm gonna go and get the biggest, best and toughest fights," he added.

"It's looking like we might fight Nick Diaz first next, it's looking like it might be Conor McGregor next. Obviously those fights come first because of the paycheques and everything it brings, while these guys [Usman and Covington] are settling the dust between the hugging championships.

"I got into the sport to separate myself from the pack and beat the crap out of guys. Those guys don't do what I do. I got three stoppages this year, they haven't done that their whole career. This is math speaking, this is not opinion. You can look it up."

Masvidal's enjoying the most prolific run in his MMA career with the Miami fighter on a three-fight win streak, which includes knockout victories over Darren Till and Ben Askren not to mention a win against Nate Diaz last month.
