As the UFC’s official ‘BMF’ champ, top-three welterweight and all-round ‘bad motherf-cker’ Jorge Masvidal is only interested in the biggest and baddest fights available.

Although Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington are set to collide for the official welterweight title at UFC 245, with Masvidal expected to fight the winner, ‘Gamebred’ seems more interested in a big money fight against Nick Diaz or Conor McGregor.

Speaking to Yahoo Sports in a recent interview (h/t MMA Fighting), the ex-Miami based street fighter said he has no interest fighting the winner of the world ‘hugging championships’ at UFC 245.

Jorge Masvidal doesn’t seem all that interested in the upcoming title fight between Kamaru Usman A fight against Usman or Covington could easily become one of the biggest fights of 2020, but “ He can’t kick nothing. It ’ s like me saying there’s a MMA guy that’s a great, great boxer technique-wise

“So it’s looking like we might fight Nick Diaz next, it’s looking like it might be Conor McGregor, obviously those fights come first because of the paycheck and everything it brings while these guys are settling the dust between the hugging championships.”

After beating Nate Diaz to a bloody pulp at UFC 244, Masvidal said the thought of a grudge match with older brother Nick hypes him up much more than a potential title fight against the winner of Usman vs. Covington.

“If he’s ever been motivated for a fight, I think it’s going to be this one,” Masvidal said about Diaz. “I think whatever he’s been doing in the past, he’ll cut it and he’ll get into his ways of fighting. Knowing the Diaz brothers and how much they love and respect each other, I know that guy’s going to come with everything he has.

As for McGregor, Masvidal guaraentees he would put a beating on the Irishman but the American Top Team standout doesn’t want to come across as a ‘bully’.

“I don’t want to sound like a bully either because since I won the Nate fight, he hasn’t said a peep,” Masvidal said of McGregor. “If that guy doesn’t want to fight, I’m not bothering nobody. I’m not going to be a bully. Dana [White] 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 going to get hurt if they lock him in there with me.

“I’m in like segregated population. It’s not the type of guy they allow me to play with.”
