Chael Sonnen recently questioned whether Jorge Masvidal did the right thing by shifting his focus between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz.
Masvidal has been calling out Diaz and McGregor for a while now. Sonnen said “Gamebred” was doing what he was supposed to do for his career and calling out the biggest superstars in the organization.
However, he wondered if the UFC would be interested in making a fight between the Miami native and Diaz, as they have fought before. Here’s what “The Bad Guy” said on his YouTube channel:
“Masvidal is aiming for something big. He’s calling some really big punches. He’s going after McGregor. He’s taken his focus off McGregor at least for a while back to Nate Diaz. He’s going after some very big names. Is he going in the wrong direction? We don’t know. He’s not doing anything wrong. He’s doing in his career exactly what he should be doing.
Watch Chael Sonnen talk about Jorge Masvidal calling out Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor:
Masvidal and Diaz previously fought at UFC 244 in the prestigious Madison Square Garden Arena with the BMF title on the line. ‘Gamebred’ won that clash after doctors called a halt to the copntest after the third round.
However, he never fought McGregor. Masvidal and “The Notorious” are two of the biggest pay-per-view stars in the UFC right now. And given their entertaining fighting styles, fans might be in for a barn burner if the duo is matched.
Jorge Masvidal was recently called up by Gilbert Burns
Gilbert Burns recently called out Jorge Masvidal for a fight and “Gamebred” apparently accepted him. Burns is coming off a loss to Khamzat Chimaev in a back and forth war at UFC 273.
Masvidal, on the other hand, is on a three-game losing streak. He’s lost twice to Kamaru Usman and once to Colby Covington lately. His last loss came against ‘Chaos’ in the main event of UFC 272.
However, ‘Durinho’ is interested in a fight against Masvidal as he thinks it will be an entertaining affair.
The timing of Masvidal’s comeback is not yet known.
