In a recent interview with ESPN, McGregor claimed that he would be interested in fighting Masvidal. But in a Thursday appearance on ESPN’s Get Up, “Gamebred” again underlined why he doesn’t think the fight will be booked.
“That fight...the president deemed it not good because they don’t want a murder charge on them,” said Masvidal. “They’re not going to allow that to happen.”
“The president himself already said it, so I don’t want to go to jail for killing nobody,” he said. “It’s not what I want to do. I’m here to compete and to keep beating people up.”
Masvidal doubled down when asked if he could “take care” of the Dubliner.
“The president said we couldn’t compete because I’m too much man, so that can’t happen,” he said. “We’re different spectrums. [Dana White] is not going to allow that to happen.”
