Jorge Masvidal heard his name being called out and wants all the smoke from Jake Paul, but on his turf.
Masvidal may not have stuck around to see Jake Paul knock out Tyron Woodley, but he definitely heard his name mentioned afterward.
“[Jorge] Masvidal and Nate Diaz, y’all are some btches for leaving this arena,” Paul shouted following his win. “‘Cause I know you don’t want that sht. I’ll take out both of y’all next.
“Just get out of your contract with daddy Dana [White] and I’m going to f*ck them up, too.”
Masvidal then took to social media to issue his response.
“Now to address that little btch [Jake Paul], that fcker,” Masvidal said in his video response. “Listen man, you can’t fcking afford me. Me and the other names that you mentioned, you can’t afford. I know what you pay. You talk a big game. You say $50 million here, $100 million there, but bullsht. If that was the case, [Floyd] Mayweather would have took the fcking fight with your btch ass, but he hasn’t because you don’t generate that type of revenue.
“You’re giving out free tickets. You’ve got street teams giving out free tickets. Who the f*ck are you selling dreams to? You can’t afford me to come over [to boxing].”
Masvidal says that if Paul really wants to face him, he’s going to have to come over to the UFC for a real fight.
“So let me tell you a little secret about me you didn’t know: I fight for money or to fight the best in the world. You’re neither,” Masvidal said. “You understand? I know it hurts, but you’re neither the best in the world or make me money. I tell you want, come on over to the UFC, sign a one-fight deal, let Dana [White] give whatever the f*ck he’s got to pay you, I’ll break your jaw in front of the whole world. I promise you that.
“If you really want it, come get it. Man to man sht. None of that boxing sht where I can’t slam you on your spinal cord and leave you in a wheelchair for life. No, come on over so we can do everything. If you want it, it’s here. If not, shut the f*ck up.”
All of this is just basically talk, because Dana White would never give Masvidal permission to fight Paul in either setting since he does not like the guy and they have been in a war of words for months.
The rivalry between Paul and Masvidal appears to be very real, but nothing will come of it until he is free from the UFC.
