McGregor has had a back and forth on Twitter with the entire roster at this point. Just in the past two weeks, he has had arguments with Nate Diaz, Tony Ferguson, Max Holloway and now Jorge Masvidal.

Masvidal doesn’t have a time frame for his return as of now, but it seems as if a fight with Edwards is in the rearview mirror. Edwards is already looking towards welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. Masvidal may have another grudge match to settle in his future with his former roommate, Colby Covington.

As for McGregor, he has a lot of options to choose from when he returns from his injury. Masvidal may be another fight he looks at in the future, as both of them have a very exciting style of fighting.
