Jorge Masvidal may have been one of the UFC’s biggest draws over the past couple of years, but apparently he’s still struggling to get the promotion to book him a fight.
That’s the word from ‘Gamebred’ himself as he claims that despite hounding the UFC brass to get him back into the Octagon before the end of the year, he’s so far been met with silence.
“I’ve been freaking going in and out of Hunter (Campbell’s) office and calling him and they still haven’t given me a date or opponent,” Masvidal told the MMA Uncensored podcast. “I wanted to fight this year. I don’t know what the (expletives) going to happen.”
“I already told them give me a f*cking deadline before I go full blast takeover,” Masvidal continued. “Like one of those bad governments when they get flipped and stuff. I need a fight, Hunter!
“Make sure the clickbaiters put ‘Masvidal demands fight soon’ and then under put Hunter [Campbell]. They’ll know what I mean.”
Masvidal also spoke about one of his biggest rivals and potential opponents, Leon Edwards, who he infamously slapped backstage live on TV after a fight in the UK, suggesting that the Brit is running scared from him.
“That guy is such a talking f*cking machine,” Masvidal said. “Cause the contract’s in front of his face, he’s said no like two or three times already. We’re already moving on. We’re not gonna saying names or nothing. I do a lot of this when it comes to contracts. It’s either yes or no when a contract gets put in front of me.
“Who is the highest ranked guy with the most money I can make, that’s who I’m going with. Leon was talking about I turned down the fight. No, you f*cking moron of a person. I fought for the belt twice. Why would I fight you? Who the f*ck are you again? Now I got some spare time, I’ll beat this guy’s f*cking teeth in but he’s nowhere to be found. So we might have to move on cause he’s a coward.”
However, Edwards has since caught wind of Masvidal’s statement and has since fired back at him.
“This pussy duck me for 3 years and I’m the coward lol,” Edwards wrote on Twitter. “Everytime my name was mentioned he went running.”
Edwards is currently on a 10-fight unbeaten run and has his sights set on a title shot, while Masvidal is seeking to bounce back from a KO loss to current champion Kamaru Usman back in April.
