Jorge Masvidal tells McGregor to stop playing games: ‘You either want it, or you don’t’

“You don’t want to fight, you don’t want to fight, but don’t flirt with me. You either want it, or you don’t.”

Jorge Masvidal is growing tired of Conor McGregor.

‘The Notorious’ had previously flirted with a proposed ‘BMF’ title fight against ‘Gamebred’ but, fast forward a couple of weeks later, and the Irishman seems more interested in challenging official champ Kamaru Usman for the welterweight title.

Speaking to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani in a recent interview (h/t MMA Fighting), an impatient Masvidal told McGregor to make his mind up on who he wants to fight next and stop flirting with him.

“I would want that fight because it’s a big money fight,” Masvidal said of a possible fight with McGregor. “It’s a dude that’s two-time division champion, he has some impressive records, and he comes to fight. So in that aspect, yes. We’re gonna f*ckin’ both sell out wherever we’re f*cking fighting at, and there’s gonna violence. But if the dude doesn’t want to fight, I’m not a bully. Go do your thing. If he doesn’t want this, I don’t give a f*ck them. You don’t want to fight, you don’t want to fight, but don’t flirt with me. You either want it, or you don’t. Leave me the f*ck alone if you don’t.”

McGregor, the former UFC featherweight and lightweight champ, is set to return to the Octagon later this month to take on Donald Cerrone in the UFC 246 main event. The PPV extravaganza takes place on Jan. 18 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
