McGregor told The Mac Life that he was disappointed in Masvidal’s fight with Nate Diaz
“I’m not just going to Jorge 170. He doesn’t really have anything. I wasn’t so happy with that bad thing [Masvidal’s fight with Diaz] past.’
Masvidal defeated Nate Diaz by technical knockout at the end of the third round on UFC 244 after 34-year-old Diaz was pulled out of the game by his doctor.
Masvidal has since responded to the wish of the Irishman to go into the octagon with him twitter: “I’m not a bully # 1 of 1.”

The UFC welterweight champion said McGregor had always said he wanted to fight the winner of his fight with Diaz, because he believed he would win.
However, since Masvidal won, he had become silent.

“To be honest, he flirted with fighting the winner when the winner’s option was Nate,” Masvidal explained.
“And he just kept throwing it there. He even made his prediction, he thought Nate would win. Since I won, he hasn’t said a beep to speak to me or anything.
The reason for tweeting that he is not a “bully” is because he believes McGregor is just a cyber bully and doesn’t want to fight him.
“I’m not a bully either. I’m not going to be one of these cyberbullies. If you don’t want to fight, I don’t want to fight.
“If you want to fight, I’ll lick my chops. Man, we’re going shopping. We’re going to do it big. You know what I mean?’.

UFC President Dana White has warned McGregor not to continue a fight with Masvidal, despite the fact that this would generate huge ratings.
White told Fight MMA: ‘I think everyone knows what I think. I think it’s a bad idea.
“Conor gets angry when I say it’s a bad idea and he says,” You think I can’t beat Masvidal? “
“I’m not saying you can’t beat Masvidal. Everyone can beat someone on a certain day, but why? Why would you go after that fight when you might just be able to wait? “
In his press conference after the UFC 244 fight, the BMF title holder was quite outspoken and confident in predicting what would happen if he were to fight McGregor.
“You know what the hell I’ll do with that little guy, I damn that little guy up. He is a f ***** dwarf! Dana White, president of this company, said that I am too big a man for him. “
The former champion with two weights is planning to become an active UFC hunter again this year and hopes to have three outings in 2020.
