Jorge Masvidal takes a dig at Khamzat Chimaev and wants to break his fuc**** face

Whether Jorge Masvidal is active inside the octagon or not, one thing is for sure that he is always the center of attention whenever he speaks to the media. This time was no different as Masvidal caught up with a journalist ahead of his promotion’s iKON FC 4 event on Friday, which takes place at the Savannah Convention Center and took this opportunity to talk smack about the rising Swede.

It is evident that Masvidal is not a fan of Khamzat’s hype as he will be stepping up inside the octagon against the one and only Nate Diaz. Khamzat will be headlining the main event at UFC 279, it will be the Swede’s first main event ever. However, Masvidal was quick to dismiss Khamzat’s intention of destroying Nate Diaz whereas many have thought that it is the worst matchup for Diaz. Not many are giving Nate Diaz a slightest chance to put a halt to Khamzat’s hype train but Masvidal thinks that Diaz has the tools to create a huge upset.

Masvidal does have history with Diaz as he fought him back in 2019 at Madison Square Garden for the BMF title. He won the bout via a doctor stoppage but since then he has failed to register a win against Usman twice and Covington back in March at UFC 272

Khamzat Chimaev did not mince words while responding to the recent comments made by fellow UFC star Jorge Masvidal. Those comments obviously struck a nerve with the surging welterweight contender, as he proceeded to roast Masvidal for his previous knockout loss to Kamaru Usman.

This is not the first time that Masvidal has chosen to talk smack against Khamzat. He also put the claims of his hype to bed when he appeared in the ‘Impaulsive’ podcast hosted by YouTube star Logan Paul.

Furthermore, it will be interesting to see when Masvidal will be returning to the action inside the octagon. His last loss obviously was a bitter one to take by his friend turned foe Colby Covington. The BMF is also following felony charges due to him attacking Colby Covington outside a bar. When asked who he will be willing to face once he makes his returns he mentioned Gilbert Burns and Leon Edwards. But the BMF has also given a warning to Notorious Conor McGregor to fight him. No doubt that will be a massive fight should Conor proceed to sign the dotted line. It will have the potential to break all the Pay per view records because of the star power those two fighters possess.

Masvidal has made it clear that he would be willing to break Khamzat’s face once he is back up and running but one thing should be kept in mind that Masvidal will soon be turning thirty eight years old in December and there might not be much room for improvement especially in terms of wrestling. His weaknesses were exposed when he was outwrestled in his last bout at UFC 272. He has also confessed that wrestling is the area where he needs to make adjustments.

If that’s the case then Gamebred’s best interest will be to better stay away from Khamzat because he is no doubt a beast when it comes to grappling. There are rumors that Gilbert Burns will be an ideal opponent to face Masvidal and Burns already seems to accept the fight with the ‘no takedown’ rules.

As much as the fans love Masvidal they also want to see him win as he enters the twilight of his career. He can talk all he wants but there are new wolves in the yard and they might be hungrier than Masvidal is. Do you guys think that Masvidal versus Khamzat will be a competitive match up?
