Jorge Masvidal had quite the year in 2019. He broke out from the pack and ascended to become of the UFC’s biggest stars. He landed a record-setting knockout of Ben Askren. He defeated Nate Diaz for the BMF belt.
With the way things have gone lately for Masvidal, it wouldn’t be a shocker if he were to be declared next in line for a shot at UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. But that’s not what he wants.
His stock at an all-time high, Masvidal wants the bigger, flashier fights, like Conor McGregor more than he wants a shot at the title.
Check out what Masvidal had to say about the belt, McGregor, and more in his recent interview with ESPN’s Ariel Helwani.
