After Demian Maia Declined The Fight, Masvidal Has Chosen His Next Opponent

Dana White made a few remarks this week regarding potential fights that weren’t happening. One of them was Demian Maia vs Jorge Masvidal. According to Jorge Masvidal, Maia turned down the fight as he plans to sit out until he fights the winner of Woodley vs. Thompson, for the welterweight belt. In an interview with MMAjunkie radio, Masvidal shared his thoughts on the matter:

“People are already turning fights down. Demian Maia didn’t want this. They offered him the fight, and he didn’t want it. I guess he wants to sit out. So I want to fight these top-10 dudes. Give me the toughest dudes you’ve got.”

Jorge went one step further and after analyzing all the possibilities he settled for one guy that just rubs hims the wrong way. Masvidal knows it wouldn’t be such a big fight for him in terms of moving forward as his target is now below him in the rankings, but he would gladly take the fight just to hurt him.
