JORGE MASVIDAL beat up the ‘fragile little guy’ Conor McGregor and said ‘you can’t pay this man enough money’ to fight him.
Masvidal fought the Irishman in early 2020 after winning the Baddest Mother F *** er belt against Nate Diaz.

Jorge Masvidal said to Conor McGregor, “You can’t pay this man enough money” to fight him.
But even UFC President Dana White poured cold water over the idea when he once said the American was “too big for Conor”.
And Masvidal – in the weight class above McGregor – followed with another ditch when he ruled himself out against the ex-UFC champion.
He said to the MMA Junkie, “I’m full size. He’s like a very small, fragile guy.
“He doesn’t want that. You can’t pay this man enough money to be fine. Don’t need it. “
McGregor currently has a horror leg break against Masvidal’s training partner Dustin Poirier.
He had initially beaten 32-year-old Poirier in 2014, but retired in the rematch in January and prepared a series decider in July.
But it ended in disaster for McGregor, 33, who broke his shin seconds before the end of the first round and lost it to a doctor stop.
He is already training again after successfully having an operation in Los Angeles, but has a six-month medical ban.
36-year-old Masvidal is also back in the gym before returning after being knocked out recently by welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.
Usman, 34, won the first bout on points but ended the show viciously in round two in April.
I am full man size. He’s like a very small, fragile guy. He doesn’t want that. You can’t pay this man enough money.

Masvidal has already opened the door to the fight against fellow campaigners Leon Edwards (29) and Gilbert Burns (35).
He added, “The guy who gets me the closest and fastest to the title fight.”
And Masvidal is scheduled to meet with the UFC in Las Vegas to discuss his rematch.
He said, “I’ll find out in two weeks.
“Whoever the UFC says, ‘Man, this guy gets you faster than anyone else and blah, blah, blah,’ that’s it. I have to take that. “
