The original BMF champion Jorge Masvidal is calling out UFC legend Conor McGregor once again, but this time he has a pretty big condition.
“The Baddest Motherf*****” (BMF) title may not be an official UFC title, but it was awarded to Masvidal at Madison Square Garden after his TKO by Doctor Stoppage victory over Nate Diaz at UFC 244 in 2019. That win would be Masvidal’s last victory in the octagon. Since UFC 244, Masvidal has been defeated by Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman twice and he was recently defeated by Welterweight contender and former best friend Colby Covington in a dominant decision victory.
The losing streak hasn’t stopped Masvidal from calling out the biggest draw in MMA history, Conor McGregor, for a fight. In an interview with the Block Asset Podcast on YouTube, Jorge says a big fight with Conor before he “overdoses on cocaine.”
“Before this guy overdoses on cocaine and then the fight never happens and I don’t get to make all that easy money, I just want to break Conor’s face,” Masvidal said.
He continued, “Let’s get that paycheck, let’s get that out of the way, sell the most pay-per-views ever before this guy does harm to himself or somebody else, and I just like boom, get that check real quick cause I got kids, right? I need the f****** money.”
When Masvidal was asked if he was willing to put the BMF title on the line in a fight against McGregor, Jorge said he would do it at a price.
“You a bad motherf**** and you got some money? Let’s put some money. Let’s get a little escrow going, you know? I put a couple million aside, you put a couple million aside, and it comes with the belt. It’s a cherry on top. That’s what a bad motherf**** would do is get this money. So it’s there, you know, but it has to be right, under my stipulations and with that belt, I’m like a f**** tyrant.” he said.
Currently, McGregor is recovering from a broken leg injury that he suffered in the UFC 264 loss to Dustin Poirier, he has yet to return to MMA training since the injury. Masvidal’s MMA future is uncertain following his loss to arch-rival Colby Covington at UFC 272 back in March. Masvidal is currently facing charges of aggravated battery and criminal mischief after he allegedly assaulted Covington outside a Miami steakhouse on March 23, just two weeks after the fight.
Jorge is due back in court for a pre-trial hearing on Aug. 31. Masvidal believes that his legal troubles shouldn’t affect his ability to be back in the cage by December at the latest.
“I would love to be there in December,” Masvidal said.
“It’s a strong possibility, November-December. Definitely going to fight this year no matter what. I don’t want to talk too much about it, but as you know, I got some little problems and stuff that I got to deal with, but I’m gonna be in there. I’m in it to win it. I’m at the gym, I’m training, I’m working on new things, I’m working on all things.”
McGregor has yet to respond to any of Masvidal’s public comments.
