Masvidal open to a return to Lightweight
In a recently posted clip on his YouTube channel, Jorge Masvidal claimed that he would love to get back to 155 because 'Gamebred' feels he never actually got a fair shot in the Lightweight Division and the UFC never gave him a crack at a Top 10 fighter. (H/T: MMA Mania)
“I would just have to be rewarded so mother(expletive) handsomely for me to drop down to ’55 and compete with anybody. But I would love to do it because I felt like I never got my fair due shot at 155. I beat a lot of top-class competitors before I came into the UFC at 155; they never gave me a shot to fight a top-10 guy."- Masvidal said in a video on his YouTube channel.
