Jorge Masvidal has continued to claim Conor McGregor doesn’t want to fight him

This isn’t the first time that Jorge Masvidal has claimed Conor McGregor doesn’t want to fight him.

Back in 2022, Masvidal took aim at McGregor as ‘Gamebred’ says the Irishman didn’t want to fight him which is why the bout never happened.

“Conor doesn’t want the fight,” Masvidal said. “If he did he’d post something, he’d say something. He’d probably just insult my mom or some relative of mine or my nation where I come from. He’ll say something like that but he won’t say anything about a fight or a fight date. So the Conor thing, he just wants it ‘I hope it goes away’ because he really doesn’t want to fight. He doesn’t mention [me] or say anything.

“I think the only thing that makes him want to get out of bed is cocaine. That’s OK, every man has a free will. You do whatever you want. But don’t say you’re a fighter and don’t take cheap shots at me, especially the things that he’s been saying, talking about my legal problems and this and that,” Masvidal continued.
