Jorge Masvidal speaks about defending BMF title against Conor McGregor
"I just want to break Conor’s face."
Jorge Masvidal has named Conor McGregor as the fighter he would like to face next following his loss to Colby Covington at UFC 272 in March.
'Gamebred' said he would defend his BMF belt against McGregor if the UFC made him an offer with the right "stipulations."

Masvidal said he wishes to reap the financial rewards of fighting McGregor at the closest available opportunity as the Irishman return from injury.
The 36-year-old teased putting his BMF belt on the line against McGregor, but only if the UFC made the bout financially worthwhile.
“Obviously, before this guy overdoses on cocaine and then the fight never happens and I don’t get to make all that easy money, I just want to break Conor’s face,” Masvidal said in an interview with Blockasset.
“I’d bring out the BMF belt only for a bad m*********** and some cash money. It’s there, but it has to be right under my stipulations, and with that belt, I’m like a f****** tyrant.”
Masvidal discusses details of a potential McGregor fight.
Masvidal would "love" the fight to take place at the end of the year in Madison Square Garden. Both fighters have previously headlined the New York arena.
The BMF champion said he's "definitely going to fight this year, no matter what," as Masvidal faces 'problems' outside the octagon.
“I would say I would love to be (at Madison Square Garden) in December. It’s a strong possibility, November, December," Masvidal added.
"Definitely going to fight this year, no matter what. I don’t want to talk too much about it, but as you know I’ve got some problems and stuff that I’ve got to deal with. But I’m gonna be in there.”
