Jorge Masvidal is looking to move to lightweight

Masvidal said that he would consider making a move if it is worth it.

“The money is gonna talk man,” he said recently in a video on his YouTube channel. “155(pounds) is such a battle. Once I’m at around 172-173 pounds I’m at around 5% body fat already, 6% body fat. I don’t have a lot of room to play with and still get to 155. It’s a lot of water.”

Currently weighing in at 170 lbs, dropping down by 15-20 lbs will not be an easy job. But Masvidal believes that he is ready to make the change and beat anybody if he is rewarded well.

“At 155 it’d be a little different. But that’s not to say that I couldn’t win and that I couldn’t make the weight. I would just have to be rewarded so m***********g handsomely for me to drop down to 155 and compete with anybody. I would love to do it,” he said
