Jorge Masvidal will be making money regardless of who his next opponent is.

That’s because according to his management team, he will only be facing either Kamaru Usman for the welterweight title or Conor McGregor next. However, it’s all dependent on whether Usman or McGregor accept the fight.

Masvidal’s stock increased even further following his flying knee knockout of Ben Askren at UFC 239 earlier this month. “Gamebred” called for a title shot afterwards, but would later call out McGregor as well for a lucrative payday. Things started picking up as oddsmakers even made Masvidal the favorite in a potential matchup with the Irishman.

McGregor, meanwhile, has yet to respond to Masvidal. As for Usman, he urged everyone to slow down, stating that it wasn’t his choice who he faces next. “The Nigerian Native” is still recovering from surgery as well, so a fight doesn’t look like it will happen at least until the end of the year.

Regardless, do you think either Usman or McGregor will be Masvidal’s next fight? Who do you prefer to see him face?

Jorge Masvidal has opened as the betting favorite in a potential fight with Conor McGregor.

Following his viral flying knee knockout of Ben Askren at UFC 239 this past weekend, Masvidal’s stock has continued to rise and rise. Striking while the iron is hot, “Gamebred” decided to call out McGregor, labeling the Irishman as an easy payday.

I want [Conor] McGregor,” Masvidal said. “I want to break his face. I think that’s an easy paycheck. He’s got these cash symbols written all over his face for me. I just don’t see it going his way if I’m honest with you.”

While McGregor has yet to respond, one oddsmaker has already started posting odds for a potential fight between the two. In what may come as a surprise to some, BetOnline have Masvidal as a -160 favorite. McGregor, meanwhile, is a +140 underdog.

Of course, it’s not the first time the former UFC double champion has opened as an underdog. It was the same case for his fights against Dustin Poirier, Chad Mendes and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

It would also be interesting to know whether these odds are for a lightweight bout or a welterweight bout, given that both fighters have competed in those weight classes before.

Regardless, do you think these odds are surprising? Or do you think Masvidal being the favorite was expected?

Jorge Masvidal wants a piece of Conor McGregor. And if that’s a fight the UFC decides to put together, longtime commentator Joe Rogan thinks “The Notorious” could be in for a long night.

Speaking on his podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Rogan discussed “Gamebred’s” recent call out of the Irishman. Rogan explained why he thinks the matchup could be “rough” for McGregor, hyping the former street fighter’s knockout power:

“Yeah, that’s a rough fight,” Rogan said. “That’s a rough fight for Conor. Masvidal is a big fella too. He really belongs at 170, that’s where he’s fighting. He fought at 155 but really tortured himself to make that weight. He’s a big guy. You’re talking about a guy who knocked out “Cowboy” Cerrone, knocked out Darren Till, knocked out Ben Askren.

I mean, he’s knocking out big welterweights. Big. Darren Till is a big welterweight. He’s big. He’s not a guy coming up from 155 pounds. He’s never making 155 pounds.” Rogan continued, “He’s really running into the last few fights, he’s coming into his own. He’s really becoming something special.

This past weekend (Sat. July 6, 2019) Masvidal scored the fastest knockout in UFC history at five seconds, dismantling formerly undefeated welterweight Ben Askren with a flying knee.

Masvidal has been the talk of the mixed martial arts (MMA) community this week. It’s no surprise the Floridian decided to capitalize on the hype and call out “The Notorious” during his appearance on “The Dan LeBatard Show” yesterday. McGregor has yet to respond.

What do you think of Rogan’s analysis of a potential fight between Masvidal and McGregor?
