Jorge Masvidal Attending UFC 246 To See Conor McGregor
Jorge Masvidal has been recently discussed as a potential opponent for Conor McGregor. Now, he says that he will attend UFC 246, to check The Notorious one out.
Masvidal is at the highest point of his UFC career, after winning the BMF title. He had the viral moment of 2019, with his flying knee knockout over Ben Askren before that. As a result, his stock has never been higher.
That is the main reason that Conor McGregor has been calling for a fight with Masvidal. Gamebred has been expressing some interest in that bout for a while.
