Jorge Masvidal has been all over the media for the second time this year after he brutally knocked out Ben Askren last Saturday at UFC 239. He strongly believes he deserves a big paycheck for his next fight, when asked what he wants next this is what he said on “The Dan LeBatard Show”,
“Definitely the title, definitely Kamaru Usman interests me. He’s got the title and that’s what I want but he’s always having injuries and things are happening, that interests me because it’s just a fight that if we made it, it’s going to sell a lot and I’m going to get the money that I deserve and you can see you put me in there in a fight and I’m going to fight. I’m going to give you what the fans want. I’ve never pulled out of a fight.”
” I want McGregor. I want to break his face. I think that’s an easy paycheck. He’s got these cash symbols written all over his face for me. I just don’t see it going his way if I’m honest with you. He backs down. He taps. I’ve never tapped in my whole entire career, He’s tapped a couple times so that’s backing down in my book. It’s something I’ve never done and I feel like I’d break him. It would be an easy fight.”
“I think either or, equal out to big, big checks so I’m happy with either or, I think Conor’s a bigger check so I wouldn’t mind Conor. I want to put money away in the bank.”
McGregor has not fought since he was dominated by world champion Khabib Nurmagomedov last October at UFC 229. Many sources claim the McGregor will fight towards the end of this year.
Clear to see that Masvidal has his sights on either a title shot or a money fight. As he feels he deserves it from both his consecutive knockout wins over Darren Till and Ben Askren.
