There have been a lot of rumblings suggesting Jorge Masvidal and Nick Diaz could be throwing down next.

However, nothing has come to fruition quite yet. Masvidal comes off a controversial TKO win over Nick’s younger brother, Nate, via a Doctor’s Stoppage, in the main event of UFC 244 last month. Shortly after, Nick expressed interest in wanting to fight Masvidal in order to avenge his baby brother.

The interest was returned on Masvidal’s end as well, but there’s still a long road to go before a fight with Nick and Masvidal can be made. Speaking to Fansided MMA, Masvidal noted he’s not waiting around for a fight with the older Diaz brother, but if the fight eventually winds up happening, then that’s great.

“No, we’re not really. Time waits for no man. Nick’s got his own thing going on. When he gets cleared by USADA and everything comes correct, who knows when that time will be. I’m not waiting for no man,” Masvidal said.

“So, if it happens, it happens. I’m just waiting for the biggest paycheck possible. If it’s Conor [McGregor] if it’s Floyd [Mayweather]. If it’s Nick. The quickest one and the one with the most dollar signs attached to it. That’s all it is.”

To those who suggest Masvidal is in this just for the money at this point, you’re exactly right. Masvidal detailed how he has scratched and clawed his way up in the game to finally get to the position he’s in now. With the self-proclaimed “lottery ticket” now in hand, “Gamebred” has every intention of cashing in big.

“I’ve been in this sport for 16 years and to those new people listening or just saying, “Oh, he’s a money-hungry wh**e”. You’re right. I’m a wh**e. But, I’m also money hungry because I’ve been doing this 16 years. I fought the best of the best. Never said no, never had an injury to have me pulled out of a fight. I never missed weight.

“I played everything to the way that you’re supposed to, to earn these paychecks, so now I’m in a position to get big paychecks. I’m going to cash in on them. No matter what. I got different lottery tickets in my hand. It’s just a matter of time when I stop being lazy, go to the gas station and turn the scratch-offs in because I’ve been working for them. I already got them. Now, I just gotta go cash them in.”

Do you think Masvidal and Diaz will eventually fight each other?

Jorge Masvidal has his eyes on the biggest money fight possible. Of course, names like Conor McGregor and Nick Diaz would give “Gamebred” exactly what he’s looking for.

Masvidal comes off a third-round TKO win over Nate Diaz at UFC 244 due to a Doctor Stoppage. Shortly after, Masvidal was called out by Nate’s older brother, Nick, who hasn’t fought since 2015. Also, a fight with McGregor down the line has been teased as well. Of course, he could also challenge the winner of Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington for the welterweight title at UFC 245.

However, speaking to Yahoo! Sports’ Kevin Iole, Masvidal confirmed fights against Nick Diaz and McGregor are at the top of his list – simply because of the paychecks they bring. (H/T TheScoreMMA)

“Obviously, those fights (with Diaz or McGregor) come first because of the paycheck and everything it brings while these guys are settling the dust between the hugging championships,” Masvidal said.

In regards to the Nick Diaz matchup, specifically, Masvidal welcomes the matchup if it truly motivates Nick to make his return. The oldest Diaz brother hasn’t fought since 2015 when he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Anderson Silva, which was later ruled a No Contest.

“If (Diaz has) ever been motivated for a fight, I think it’s going to be this one,” Masvidal said. “I think whatever he’s been doing in the past, he’ll cut it and he’ll get into his ways of fighting. Knowing the Diaz brothers and how much they got love and respect for each other, I know that guy’s going to come with everything he has.”

What do you think about Masvidal prioritizing fights with Diaz and McGregor first?

It’s not surprising that Jorge Masvidal would love for his next fight to either be against Nick Diaz or Conor McGregor.

Masvidal has enjoyed an electric 2019 with three stoppage wins over the likes of Darren Till, Ben Askren and Nate Diaz. The fight against Diaz at UFC 244 notably headlined Madison Square Garden and cemented “Gamebred” as one of the promotion’s newest mainstream stars.

Masvidal now wants to keep things going by continuing to fight the big names. The elder Diaz brother in Nick called him recently out as he took issue with Masvidal’s comments towards his little brother.

Although Nick hasn’t fought since 2015, there seems to be a drive from his side in returning to the Octagon and facing Masvidal. And that’s music to Masvidal’s ears:

“Huge fight. It has a huge backstory to it too,” Masvidal said on Food Truck Diaries. “Growing up, me and Nick both fought in Strikeforce and different shows. And I always liked Nick’s style as well. Always liked how he scraps. Never thought he was the most skilled guy but I think he’s one of the guys with the biggest heart. He’d lay it all out there. Win or lose, he’d always give it his all.

“If he’s got that fire lit under him, I know we’re going to have a fight. I know Nick’s a dog, he’s going to take whatever I can give and I’m going to give him everything I got. … It’s a fight that pumps me up. Wherever you want to do it. … I don’t care where the fight is at.”

Another big fight is the always-lucrative money fight with McGregor. It’s a bout that has been talked about for a while but in the end, Masvidal doesn’t think the Irishman wants to take a chance against him.

“Oh, would love that fight,” he added of McGregor. “The bank account increases more. But I’m not a bully man. If the dude don’t want it, I understand.

“He was picking Nate hard and then he was talking about fighting the winner. He doesn’t want this, man.”

Who do you think Masvidal should fight next?

It looks like Nick Diaz is, in fact, serious about returning to mixed martial arts (MMA) competition soon.

Diaz recently generated some buzz within the combat sports community when he expressed interest in fighting Jorge Masvidal. This is seemingly to avenge the defeat of his baby brother, Nate, who was defeated by “Gamebred” in the UFC 244 main event earlier this month after a Doctor Stoppage resulting in a TKO.

On Diaz’s Instagram story over the past day, Diaz claims he’s “fighting again soon,” and teased big news coming up. You can hear him mention this in the video player below.

In another post on his Instagram story, Diaz claims that he will be in Vegas to meet with the UFC soon, likely to discuss a potential return to the Octagon.

Diaz has actively been campaigning for a fight with Masvidal online, re-posting fan photos hyping a potential fight between himself and “Gamebred,” captioning the posts with comments such as “give the fans what they want to see.”

Masvidal has since expressed interest in fighting the oldest Diaz brother next, as he’s seeking out the highest payday possible after admitting to only having a few years left in his fighting career.

Do you think Diaz’s claims that he’s fighting soon will prove to be true?
