UFC's Jorge Masvidal 'dead serious' about wanting Canelo Alvarez fight

Shortly afterwards, and a couple of thousand miles away in Las Vegas, Canelo Alvarez, one of boxing's biggest names, won a world title in a remarkable FOURTH weight class when he beat Sergey Kovalev to claim the WBO light heavyweight championship.

Masvidal wasted no time in calling out the four-weight world champion after dispatching Diaz in three rounds at Madison Square Gardens.

UFC superstar Conor McGregor, who has a heated rivalry with Masvidal, set up one of the most lucrative fights in combat sports when he faced Mayweather in a boxing match in 2017. "I'm just here to get the biggest checks possible but Nate is in the future for a fact".

"I don't know I'd like to break his face".

"I'm a very good neurologist and a very good doctor, and calling me f*cking scum online and calling my office staff and yelling at them, threatening me, I fear for my health and safety", he told MMA Fighting.

"Somebody's going to get hurt, and it's probably going to be me this time". "It's just kind of fate". I heard we fucking killed him on the pay-per-views.

The idea of this fight might be nothing more than Masvidal trying to conceive of how he can make the most money. In his last two fights, Masvidal had spectacular knockouts again Darren Till and the undefeated (then) Ben Askren.

"I made an objective call based on my assessment of the fighter", he told MMA Fighting.

"Is Canelo a better boxer than me?" "He gave me the love, I'm giving it right back".

The chances of Masvidal fighting Canelo are extremely slim, with a number of appealing UFC bouts ahead of the BMF title victor in 2020.

"I didn't think they were going to stop it". The Rock's cool, I like 'Ballers, ' but he picked the wrong side so he can get his ass whooped too. "But can I bring some elements that boxers ain't used to that are in the legal realm of boxing and throw Canelo completely off his game?" I punch like a F--ing truck. With boxing gloves on I'm not afraid of breaking my hand because I have that cast [of tape] on, it will be a little bit extra harder. I feel like I could be a legitimate threat in there'. "Not just the cut, but the overall assessment of the fighter [and] how the fight was going".
