The UFC could have different plans for Jorge Masvidal.
For months, the welterweight king in Kamaru Usman has been tied to fighting the “BMF” champion as that fight makes sense.
However, UFC president Dana White stated on Friday to ESPN that a different “interesting” matchup is on the table for Masvidal.
“We’re talking about a few different things,” White said. “We have something else interesting for Masvidal, too, that we were just talking about (Thursday). We’ll see.”
“We’ll see how this whole thing plays out – locations and how fast,” White said. “To start speculating down the road right now is too soon. Let’s get by these three fights in Florida and we’ll figure out what’s next. We’re talking about different possibilities with those guys.”
Let the speculation begin but a fight that both fighters have expressed interest in doing is Masvidal vs. Conor McGregor. Can you imagine that press conference should it happen?
