Jorge Masvidal is currently in a pretty bad situation because he has lost three in a row. However, he really lost to the very top of the category, including twice to the until recently champion Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington.
It seems that this last defeat was the hardest for him because after it he attacked Covington from behind in a restaurant and knocked out his tooth. Although he has three losses in a row, this does not stop Gamebreda from calling out the new champion, Leon Edwards.
Their mutual fight was supposed to take place at the UFC 269 event in the twelfth month of last year, but then it was canceled. After that, Edwards stopped being interested in him until the moment of winning the belt, after which he started promoting that fight again.
But the fans resent him because the fight for the belt in which one actor is Masvidal makes absolutely no sense. Such things were also written to him on social networks, and it seems that it bothered Jorge. “For starters, everybody has an opinion and everybody’s entitled to it.
So if people think I deserve it or not, awesome man, I don’t take nothing to heart. I definitely feel I deserve it… Just from the money side, we definitely deserve it. Just from the fan side, we definitely deserve it.
Who doesn’t want to see me fight Leon? They might say I don’t deserve it, but they’ll still raise their hand in the dark and quiet, and be like, ‘I wanna see that fight and I’m actually going to pay my hard-earned money to go see that fight.’ So I don’t agree with that,” Masvidal said.
Masvidal reiterated his intention to fight Edwards. “If I didn’t deserve it, and the fans didn’t want it, why is it that every time I talk to reporters or anybody, they’re always talking about this? Why aren’t they talking about anything else? They’re always talking about me against Leon in England.
Leon, fucking step up to the plate, bro. You begged, and cried, and did all this bullshit before when I was fighting for the titles. Now you’ve got the belt. Let’s go”.
