Conor McGregor is ‘broken’ and like ‘a bitter old man screaming at the TV all day’, blasts Jorge Masvidal as he claims injured Irishman ‘cannot put himself back together again’
- Jorge Masvidal had to pull out of his upcoming fight against Leon Edwards
- ‘Gamebred’ is one of many to have been called out by Conor McGregor before
- Irishman is recovering from his broken leg and has been vocal on social media
- Masvidal says ‘Notorious’ is ‘like a bitter old man, screaming at the TV all day’
Jorge Masvidal says Conor McGregor is ‘broken’ and claims the Irishman’s online tirades are an indication that all is not well.
The American is one of many fighters previously called out by McGregor but believes the ‘Notorious” is ‘a bitter old man screaming at the TV all day’.
Masvidal recently pulled out of his upcoming fight with Leon Edwards, who – like McGregor – is managed by Paradigm Sports and ‘Gamebred’ thinks McGregor is annoyed he will no longer be getting a cut of that contest.

The Irishman is working hard to come back from his broken leg suffered this year
McGregor called for Masvidal’s UFC ‘BMF’ Championship belt to be taken away from him now
The Dubliner is recovering from the broken leg he suffered in a second defeat by Dustin Poirier and has endured a frustrating time on the sidelines.
He tweeted: ‘F*** your injury, you’ve bottled it,’ to Masvidal about his withdrawal, has posted and deleted a number of tweets, including one of himself prowling his living room shirtless while watching Max Holloway’s fight at the weekend.
Masvidal told The MMA Hour: ‘I think he is a bitter old man just screaming at the TV all day.
‘It sucks for him that he’s broken. He’s gotten broken so many times that he can’t put himself back together as far as fighting goes. Like, go have a regular life, bro.
Masvidal suffered an injury in his training camp but the nature of it has not been revealed
‘So I’m not worried about him’, Masvidal went on. ‘I’m just trying to get big paychecks and fight. Treat older people the right way. When they sign us to fight, I’ll teach you some respect.’
In terms of a fight between Masvidal and McGregor happening in the future, the American played down those chances due to the weight differential and again touched on what he thinks is McGregor’s issue with him.
‘I couldn’t really care less for him. He’s a 145-er – I’m a 170-pounder. Full-grown man size. Have him deal with fun-size. I’ve always addressed this when it comes up – we’re not even going to entertain this f****** cockroach.
‘He’s mad because what’s-his-face is signed to whatever the f*** his company’s called, and they were going to collect the biggest paycheck they were ever going to collect off my ass fighting and beating Leon’s ass.
‘It’s not going to happen anymore, so you can see the bitterness get exposed, but he just picked the wrong dude.
‘He can still get that paycheck, but mini-ass midget doesn’t want to tell his guy, ‘Yo, wait up, just fight him later and we’ll still get that paycheck’ – it might even be bigger because there’s more publicity behind it. But he’s a corny midget f***. So what do you say?’
Masvidal is keen to fight Edwards in March once he has recovered from an injury suffered in training but the British star has indicated he will wait for his chance to take on the champion Kamaru Usman.
McGregor is unlikely to be back in action until the middle of 2022 after he has returned to full fitness.
