Jorge Masvidal on Nate Diaz

Recently on MMA Junkie Radio, Jorge Masvidal explained why he wants the Nate Diaz rematch.

“Nate, though he called me some names after the fight that I didn’t like, like ‘coward’ and ‘quitter,’ this and that, I still got a lot of respect for the dude,” Masvidal said, as quoted by

“I love his style and how he fights, and what he represents. But obviously, I didn’t like when he called me that. Him always saying that I got saved by the referee, that Round 4 and 5 were going to swing his way – which I know that was psychological play for him to get another rematch, which I was always down to do, to me it’s like, you shouldn’t have said that, man, because it might just happen.

I’m going to whoop your * again. I’m going to show you what would happen in Round 4 and 5”.

“I’ve never tapped in my career, so him calling me a quitter is like crazy.

I’ve got over 50 fights, I’ve never tapped. I’ve actually gone to sleep. … So, calling me a quitter, or I’ve never came out of my stool, or something like that, I’m up at that bell every time”.
