“I’d like to break some Disney characters’ faces. I’ve been fighting men who have been training since 7,8 years old to do the same thing to me what I want to do to them. Fighting guys like them is a bonus man, that’s all I can say.”

Masvidal says Jake Paul is ‘Salty’

Masvidal seems pretty confident in himself and believes he can defeat the Paul brothers. Recently, ‘Gamebred’ had also made a prediction for the Woodley and Jake Paul fight. Paul seemed to have been unimpressed by Masvidal’s prediction and took various shots at ‘Gamebred’.

Speaking about that, Masvidal said, “Salty man. He is a big fan of mine, a big groupie; always DM’ing me, used to DM me. And then got salty when I said, ‘Fu*k. This is what I think. Woodley’s my boy. I’ve known Woodley for 13, 14 years; almost my whole career.”

“Who the fu*k is the Paul kid, bro? He thinks we were friends because I gave him some advice in the Ben Askren fight. Get the fu*k out of here, bro. I’ll slap you and whoever the fu*k you want, bro. I’m a fighter. Of course, you’re gonna get offended.”

As Jorge Masvidal is currently signed with the UFC, he cannot compete anywhere else. Therefore, a fight between Jake Paul and Masvidal seems highly unlikely at the moment. However, according to ‘Gamebred’, anything can happen.

Talking about a potential fight, Masvidal said, “UFC would have to sign off, but nothing is impossible. Dana doesn’t like those guys and Dana knows Ill go in there and put a hurting on those kids. So maybe he does send in the fu*king assassin.”
