Jorge Masvidal is looking for a fight. The highly-ranked welterweight veteran wants to get back into the cage soon, but says that two guys turned down fights with him. As a guest on MMA Junkie Radio, Masvidal named those two men - Neil Magny and Kamaru Usman - and didn’t hold back with his thoughts on them.

He started with Usman, who most recently defeated Demian Maia:

“That dude thinks he deserves a title shot beating Maia on two weeks’ notice. Awesome for you if that’s how you think.”

Masvidal’s teammate Colby Covington actually got a title shot off of beating Demian Maia, so there’s that. But at least that was after a full camp.

He continued on about Usman:

“It’s funny because Usman was calling me out saying I had ducked him,” Masvidal said. “Basically, that’s calling me a coward. Now that I’m saying let’s fight, he doesn’t want to fight.

“I saw him at Colby’s fight – I thought he had two broken (hands). That guy has to be better than Wolverine because he didn’t have any cast on. So that dude is Super Marvel X. I don’t know what the f—k he’s made out of. You broke two hands, and you don’t have no cast on? Wow, bro. That’s super powers, for real.”

He was then asked about Magny, who he has publicly stated his dislike for on numerous occasions in the past;

“The only thing he’s fighting is f—kin’ diabetes, I don’t know what the f—k, but he ain’t fighting me, that skinny anorexic motherf—ker,” Masvidal said.

Okay then.

Masvidal (32-13, 9-6 UFC) is currently on a two-fight losing streak, dropping a split decision to the aforementioned Maia and a unanimous decision to Stephen Thompson.
