Conor McGregor and Jorge Masvidal's conflict doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon. Masvidal, also known as "Gamebird," has previously expressed a desire to "smash" Conor in the face before he "overdoses on cocaine." Masvidal declared that McGregor was "scared" and issued a challenge for a fight. McGregor responded with a jab at his "pigeon brain."
Since breaking his leg last year, McGregor has not competed. The Irishman has returned to training, although it is unlikely that he will play anytime soon. Masvidal joked that McGregor didn't want to fight because of his ongoing injury problems. "If he did, he'd write something, he'd say something, he'd probably just disrespect my mom or any cousin of mine, my nation, where I hail from, something like that," Masvidal stated in an interview with the MMA fight.
Masvidal's remarks infuriated McGregor, who responded by sharing a video on social media in which he said, "Insult your mother? You are such a loser, mate. Your mother and I get along.
Masvidal has long advocated for a matchup with McGregor, but because of the vast weight disparity between the two competitors, UFC president Dana White has not been very receptive to the notion, according to Mirror.
In addition to two different charges of sexual harassment, detention in Florida, and societal unrest in his native Dublin, McGregor has been embroiled in several court battles.
One of the most famous fighters in the history of the sport, Conor McGregor, has participated in several high-stakes matches throughout his illustrious career. In a high-profile match, McGregor and boxer Floyd Mayweather squared off in 2017. If rumors are to be believed, both parties are in negotiations for a $1 billion rematch of their epic fight.
Masvidal, on the other hand, is dealing with problems outside of the ring as well. After being accused of an attack in Miami and being charged with fatal battery damage, he is currently in court alongside his adversary Colby Covington.
