Conor McGregor blasts Jorge Masvidal for accusing him of being on steroids: “Stupid beyond belief”

Conor McGregor, Jorge Masvidal

Former UFC dual-weight champion Conor McGregor doesn’t seem to be a fan of Jorge Masvidal’s recent accusation.

The Irishman has stated that he’s going to return later this year at 170 pounds. He’s been out of action due to a leg break last July against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. Since that injury, McGregor has been on the shelf but has made his intentions known.

He would like to challenge UFC welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman. In order to prepare for a move up in weight, McGregor has clearly added some weight. It’s weight that welterweight contender, Jorge Masvidal, believes has been added due to steroids.

“I would love to fight him at 170 pounds, but I don’t wait for anyone. If he wants to do it, I’ll break his face, if he doesn’t want to do it, let him come next.”

Then, accusing McGregor of steroids, Jorge Masvidal said:

“He is false, he knows that I am a man who hits hard and that I come to kill, I do not come to play hug in the cage, I am going to give everything inside me to kill him, and I have a little size, although now he’s injecting steroids and all kinds of things. But, he is still a little boy.”

Conor McGregor has now decided to go back at Jorge Masvidal on Twitter. In an already-deleted tweet, The Irishman said in response to the BMF Champion:
