The “Baddest Mother Fu**er” in UFC – Jorge Masvidal (35-13) believes a potential fight between him and former multiple world boxing champion Floyd Mayweather could surpass the 2017 showdown between Floyd and Conor McGregor.
“Gamebred” had an outstanding 2019, defeating all three of his opponents inside the cage. He won the BMF belt in his last meg fight with Nate Diaz and now the sky is the limit for Masvidal.
A month ago he made his intentions clear, by saying he wants to box Saul Alvarez. Of course, the Mexican superstar was kind enough to say no at the offer and now it seems that Jorge Masvidal is targeting an older and former boxing king.
Recently, Floyd announced that he’ll be doing business with UFC President Dana White and he’ll be making his return in 2020.
It’s understandable that Masvidal wants to cash in while he’s on top of his game.
“McGregor is one of the lottery tickets we’re possibly going to cash on in. It’s not the biggest lottery ticket, but it’s one of the lottery tickets.
“Me versus Mayweather. I want cash money. I got children and those children’s got needs. I love to fight and one of my first loves growing up was boxing, and then I fell in love with wrestling and then UFC came about.
“And I was like, ‘Wow, I can do them both of them at the same damn time.’ I fell in love with the UFC and that’s all I’ve done, the MMA. But I can box my ass off.”
“Not saying I’m a better boxer than Mayweather but man, I’m gonna be in there with bad intentions trying to hurt him. I’m a well-conditioned athlete who’s not going to fade. I’m not going to fade in the eighth or ninth round.
“I’m going to be there for the whole night. I want to get into the biggest, toughest, roughest fights that I possibly can and make a paycheck for them as well, get compensated for my skills.”
