In a recent interview with MMA Junkie, Jorge Masvidal shed some light on why the fight with McGregor never happened.

“He’s never mentioned my name,” Masvidal said, as quoted by “He’s never addressed me, only to say like stupid things or something, but he’s never addressed a fight with me or something because he is scared".

“If we can’t get him to get into the cage with a guy he’s convinced he can beat, what the * will make him get in the cage with me? The UFC has tried to make this fight happen and Conor doesn’t want it, he doesn’t want the damn fight.

He never mentions my name, but we’re the biggest fight possible. You think Michael Chandler sells more than me vs. Conor? Nobody in their right mind thinks that. … I’m one of the biggest pay-per-view draws of the UFC in the last five six years.

Of course we’d break record, but this guy won’t do it. … In my future, I don’t see this fight happening unless I run into him at a parking lot”.
