‪Jorge Masvidal Wanted Kevin Lee Cut From The UFC For His ‘Disrespectful’ Actions After Tapping Out‬

‪Jorge Masvidal Wanted Kevin Lee Cut From The UFC For His ‘Disrespectful’ Actions After Tapping Out‬

Jorge Masvidal unleashed a rant on Kevin Lee following UFC on ESPN+28 after Lee attempted to continue his fight with Charles Oliveira, despite tapping out.

Lee was defeated in the third round via a guillotine choke from the Brazilian in the main event of March's show.

But Lee attempted to continue fighting despite the tap and 'Gamebred' took to Twitter to put down the 27-year-old.

The BMF champ wrote: "You should be cut for this bi**h move. Tap and try to continue? One of the lowest things you can do h*e ass bi**h."

Masvidal then went in on 'The Motown Phenom' for missing weight by two and a half pounds leading up to the fight, calling it a 'bi**h move'.

It's unknown if Masvidal has previous with Lee but it's safe to say he wasn't a fan of his antics.

Following the fight, Lee explained that he 'choked himself out' in the bout.

"I mean I got choked. So, I don't know. The fight was going good. I just got choked. That's all I can.. I really can't put it on anything else but that." Lee told MMAFighting per BJPenn.com.

"The first two rounds I felt like I stuck to the gameplan and then I sat in the corner before the third and I told them I was going to switch up the gameplan.

"And, looking back on it, I admit that it was the wrong move. I tried to take control of the fight, instead of just trying to let the fight happen. So, I choked myself out."

Meanwhile, Masvidal hasn't fought since UFC 244 against Nate Diaz and is currently in a pay dispute with the promotion.

Masvidal hasn't fought at lightweight since April 2015, but admitted he'd go back down to face the undefeated Russian fighter if the UFC pay him what he's worth.

"If they pay me what I'm worth? To go down to 155 [lbs]? A hundred percent," he said.

"I like what Khabib does. I like that he's in the field. He's one of the best lightweights at the weight currently. Just that obstacle alone would be enough for me to consider dropping that weight. But then, the UFC would have to be working for it."
