Masvidal recently told MMA Fighting that McGregor’s silence about the potential bout speaks about his motivation:
“Conor doesn’t want the fight,” Masvidal told MMA Fighting’s Damon Martin.
“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 co caine. 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.
“You’re a f****** p****. We could do it man-to-man in the cage and just once and for all and get paid a handsome reward while doing it. So if this individual doesn’t want to do it, [because] he knows what’s going to happen.”
While McGregor didn’t answer the fight call out – he did see fit to answer this latest batch of comments. And he did it in a memorable fashion.
“Insult your mom? What a loser you are mate. Me and your mom get along.”
McGregor has been side lined for a year thanks to a a leg break he endured during a fight with Dustin Poirier last summer. Now the rumored return of McGregor has been delayed for 2023 as rumors of PED abuse swirl.
