UFC Lightweight Jorge Masvidal plans to complain to the commission about Michael Chiesa's beard

UFC Lightweight Jorge Masvidal plans to file a complaint objecting to his opponent Micheal Chiesa's beard.

Ariel Helwani spoke with UFC Lightweight Jorge Masvidal in advance of his UFC on Fox 8: Johnson vs. Moraga bout with Michael Chiesa. Topics covered include:

  • The grudge Masvidal is carrying against Chiesa because of Chiesa's behavior at his fight against Masvidal's teammate Anton Kuivanen.
  • Masvidal's intention to complain to the commission asking that they tie up Chiesa's "homeless man in the street" because he doesn't want to "get mat herpes."
  • Masvidal's taste in junk food and how he scales it back during training camp.
  • Masvidal's need for a finish win to "get my name out there."
