Jorge Masdival has launched a scathing attack on Leon Edwards after accusing his rival of ducking a potential grudge match.
UFC star Masdival has not fought since suffering a second straight defeat to welterweight champion Kamaru Usman in April, and is desperate for a bout with Edwards after a backstage altercation between the pair two years ago at a show in London.
However, Edwards appears to be holding out for a title shot against the winner of the Usman v Colby Covington fight at UFC 268 on November 6, recently tweeting: "My next fight will be for the world title I don’t want to hear nothing about a guy coming off 2 fight skid and got KO'd his last fight."
And now, the 30-year-old has been the subject of a foul mouthed rant from Masdival.
"That guy is such a talking f****ing machine. Cause the contract's in front of his face, he's said no like two or three times already. We're already moving on," Masdival told MMAUncensored.
'We're not gonna saying names or nothing. I do a lot of this when it comes to contracts. It's either yes or no when a contract gets put in front of me.
What did you make of Jorge Masvidal's comments? Let us know in the comments section.
'Who is the highest ranked guy with the most money I can make, that's who I'm going with. Leon was talking about I turned down the fight. No, you f***ing moron of a person. I fought for the belt twice. Why would I fight you? Who the f**k are you again?
"Now I got some spare time, I'll beat this guy's f***ing teeth in but he's nowhere to be found. So we might have to move on cause he's a coward."
At 36, 'Gamebred' may sense the clock is ticking in terms of big draw fights for him, and has blamed UFC's chief business officer Hunter Campbell for the lack of developments.
"I’ve been freaking going in and out of Hunter's office and calling him and they still haven’t given me a date or opponent. I wanted to fight this year. I don’t know what the f**k’s going to happen.
"I already told them give me a f***ing deadline before I go full blast takeover. Like one of those bad governments when they get flipped and stuff. I need a fight, Hunter!"
Masdival is a veteran of 50 professional MMA fights, with a record of 35-15, although six of his defeats have come in his last 12 bouts.
