Jorge Masvidal (35-15-0) has dismissed the idea of fighting former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor (22-6-0). ‘Gamebred’ has cited contract negotiation issues as the barrier in making the dream fight a reality.

Speaking with MMA Junkie at the PFL Playoffs, Jorge Masvidal expounded on why the bout with the Irish megastar has not yet been brought to fruition by the UFC.

The Miami native claims McGregor is demanding hefty remuneration for the fan-favorite matchup. As usual, Masvidal didn’t miss the chance to provoke the Irishman by mocking his smaller frame.

“Yeah, I am full man size. [Conor McGregor] is like a very small fragile dude. He don’t want that. You can’t pay that man enough money. So, that was okay, you know, he don’t need it.”

Jorge Masvidal’s remarks suggest he has not entirely given up on inciting a rivalry with Conor McGregor.

Last month, the No.6-ranked welterweight took a dig at McGregor during a Q&A session. Slamming the Irish supernova for his recent skid in the UFC, ‘Gamebred’ said McGregor couldn’t “afford” to lock horns with him.
