However, ‘Gamebred’ pulled out of the fight because of an undisclosed injury, which left the Brit without a partner to dance with. Following Masvidal’s withdrawal, not only ‘Rocky’ but many other fighters have taken a dig at him. One of them was the former two-division champion, Conor McGregor.

‘The Notorious’ trashed Masvidal for backing off from the fight and called him a ‘bit*h’ on the Internet.

However, this didn’t settle well with the welterweight and he quickly fired back at the Irishman. ‘Gamebred’ tweeted, “I guess you’re off your meds again barking up the wrong tree and don’t be upset your client was about to be blessed with the biggest payday of his life. And now you don’t get a dime off his whack a**. Too much man for you little guy, go back to fighting old dudes in bars.”
