Jorge Masvidal is going to kill them with kindness. Sure flying knees and right hooks are cool, but have you ever tried being nice to Conor McGregor?
Speaking with TMZ Sports, Masvidal was pretty complimentary about McGregor and still called him out.
“First, let me say whether Conor takes it or not because people be putting sometimes words in people’s mouths, from my mouth in particular I got good things to say about Conor. He’s done a lot in this sport and he’s made his money already. If he feels he’s not getting the money he deserves to come back, man I’m the first one to applaud him and be like, ‘Do your thing my brother. Go get the money.’ I always cheer for my MMA brothers and sisters. So if he feels he ain’t getting his money’s worth, I’m not gonna call ever him a pussy for that, or nothing like that. Go get your money’s worth. That’s the first thing I want to say.
“Believe me, brother, I can talk sh*t with the best of them. I grew up in Miami, Florida. Anybody that knows me knows I can talk sh*t for days, but I don’t get paid enough to do it so I’m not gonna be flirting with dudes online. Let’s just fight, what I signed up for, and that’s it. Conor wants the fight, I want the fight, it’ll happen. If not, I don’t want anybody putting words in my mouth or nothing like that. The dude is a f***ing G, bro. He did his thing. He wants more money and he’s not getting it, who am I to blame him? I would never tell a guy, ‘You’re a b***h for not taking a fight.’ No, he wants to get paid his money. He deserves it. I’m in the same place right now. I want an upgrade from where I’ve been at.”
Jorge Masvidal and Conor McGregor were kind of made for one another. It will lead to epic pre-fight trash talks, fans getting angry on both side, and a likely KO finish. This fight needs to happen. MMA needs it.
