JORGE MASVIDAL wants to fight Conor McGregor before he “overdoses on cocaine”.
The outspoken UFC welterweight has called out the Notorious before and reckons that fighting him would be “easy money”.
Jorge Masvidal wants to fight Conor McGregor
Conor McGregor hasn’t fought since July last year
Masvidal, who hasn’t won a fight since 2019, believes that a bout with McGregor would break pay-per-view records, but it may need to happen soon.
The 37-year-old star told Blockasset: “Obviously, 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.
“Let’s get that paycheque, let’s get that out of the way, selling the most pay-per-views ever before this guy does harm to himself or somebody else.
“I just, like, boom, get that cheque real quick because I got kids, right? I need the f***ing money.”

SunSport have contacted McGregor for comment.
Masvidal won the unique BMF belt when he beat Nate Diaz in November 2019, and he’d be willing to put it on the line against Conor.
He added: “I’d bring out the BMF belt only for a bad motherf***er and some cash money.
“You a bad motherf***er, you got money, let’s put some money, let’s get a little escrow going.SUN BINGO GET £50 BONUS & 50 FREE SPINS TODAY
“I put a couple million aside, you put a couple million aside and it comes with the belt as a cherry on top.
“That’s what a bad motherf***er would do is get this money.
“It’s there, but it has to be right under my stipulations, and with that belt I’m like a f***ing tyrant.”
Masvidal has already had two cracks at welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, being knocked out in the second round of their most recent clash.
A third crack at the Nigerian seems farfetched, but Masvidal could get another shot at the belt if Brit Leon Edwards was to upset Usman at UFC 278 on August 20.
On the prospect of another crack at UFC gold, he continued: “That’s another intangible.
“Am I going to say no to fighting for the title? Hell no. I’ll get my ass in shape and get ready for this f***ing hooligan and give it all I got to break his face.
“There’s a lot of intangibles, a lot of things that can happen. I could be getting ready for No10 of the world and then all of a sudden I’m fighting for the world championship.
“Remember, I’m Jorge Masvidal, I’m the same guy that took that world championship fight on six days’ notice in the middle of the pandemic, flew all the way across the world to throw down that fight.
“What I’m telling you is I don’t even know what I’m going to do myself. I’m unpredictable like that. I’m going to go with the best options all the time.”
Masvidal was last in action in March, when he was beaten by bitter rival Colby Covington via unanimous decision.
He expects to return to action later this year, adding: “I would say I would love to be [at Madison Square Garden] in December.
“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’ve got some problems and stuff that I’ve got to deal with. But I’m gonna be in there.”
Masvidal is currently involved in a lawsuit with Covington, having been charged with aggravated battery with great bodily harm and criminal mischief following an alleged altercation in March.
