Jorge Masvidal isn’t a fan of Gilbert Burns.
With both Burns and Masvidal not having a fight booked, the Brazilian has called out ‘Gamebred’ and it is a fight many fans want to see. Yet, Burns recently took to social media to reveal Masvidal has turned him down three times, at UFC 281, UFC 282 and UFC 283.
Just letting everyone know that @ufc offered me @GamebredFighter 3x First time was for Nov 12. He said he needs more time, second time for Dec 10 he said he was going to 🇧🇷 to fight me and now he just said no again! 🤷🏾♂️ so I guess the B from his BMF belt doesn’t stand for bad 🤦🏾♂️

“Just letting everyone know that @ufc offered me 3x First time was for Nov 12. He said he needs more time, second time for Dec 10 he said he was going to (Brazil) to fight me and now he just said no again! so I guess the B from his BMF belt doesn’t stand for bad,” Burns tweeted.
Jorge Masvidal then took to social media to respond to Burns and blasted him as he said he never turned down the fight once.

“Sorry I’ve been missing. Your boy’s been spreading his words, doing his thing, making sure this country stays as free as can be. I love you all, left to right,” Masvidal said in an Instagram video. “Midterms are over already, so now I can focus on some other things like myself and being selfish. So I’ve got to address this little b***h that I usually wouldn’t have time for, but I’ll make some time for you today, Gilbert. Hunter (Campbell), if you’re hearing this or when you see this, can you please tell this b***h I never agreed to November, December or January. I’ve had court cases, I’ve had different things, a bunch of things where I haven’t been able to decide on when I fight.
“I’ve gotten some much better news on today, so guess what?. If you want to get your ass whooped when Leon Edwards defends that f*****g belt in England, I will gladly beat the living s**t out of you Gilbert. If not, shut the f**k up,” Masvidal continued. “Because you are a p***y. You’re not going to do nothing. When you see me in the street or when you see me in the cage, and we both know it, you’re going to ask me for a picture in real life and say it’s all bulls*** and it’s just for the pay-per-view. So shut the f*** up.”
Jorge Masvidal is on a three-fight losing skid and has not fought since UFC 272 in March when he lost to Colby Covington by decision.
