Jorge Masvidal goes off on “f**king coward” Neil Magny, Magny issues scathing response

Jorge Masvidal, Neil Magny

When Gunnar Nelson was forced out of his UFC Liverpool co-main event showdown with Neil Magny, sixth-ranked UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal offered to step in and replace him. He only asked that this short-notice bout with Magny be contested at a 180-pound catchweight, as he wouldn’t be able to make the welterweight division’s 170-pound limit in time for the card. Regrettably, it seems as though this fight won’t be happening. 

Masvidal gave his side of things on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour.

“Magny has said no two times in the past, this one here will be a third time,” Masvidal said (transcribed by Adam Guillen Jr for MMAMania). “The other two times was at 170 pounds. So maybe he can say that he’s a professional and he stays ready, but he’s such a fucking square, saying that 180 was…whatever he just didn’t want to do it.”
