Jorge Masvidal met a familiar foe in Donald Cerrone following the aftermath of UFC 246 on Saturday night.
Masvidal was in attendance to watch Conor McGregor enjoy a successful return to the Octagon when he blitzed Cerrone in just 40 seconds. “Gamebred” was a keen observer, especially as he could be a potential next opponent for McGregor.
While McGregor didn’t specifically call him out afterwards, he remained open to a bout with Masvidal. Instead, the latter would go face-to-face with McGregor’s downed opponent in Cerrone as they embraced each other backstage.
Of course, the duo faced each other back in January 2017 when Masvidal defeated Cerrone via second-round TKO at UFC Denver. But despite that result, it was all smiles when the pair met each other.

However, most would agree that a McGregor vs. Masvidal showdown would be the best idea in the meantime. Perhaps it could still happen, especially if the Irishman calls for it.
