Jorge Masvidal is currently at an all-time high in his mixed martial arts career. He followed up his 5-second win over Ben Askren with a victory over Nate Diaz at UFC 244, securing the BMF Championship in the process.

Masvidal recently sat down for an interview with Yahoo Sports and discussed the possibility of a superfight against either Conor McGregor or Nick Diaz.

“They’re fighting for the spot to fight me. I’m the ticket at 170 pounds. I’m going to go and get the biggest, best and toughest fights. So it’s looking like we might fight Nick Diaz next, it’s looking like it might be Conor McGregor, obviously those fights come first because of the paycheck and everything it brings while these guys are settling the dust between the hugging championships.”

It remains to be seen whether Dana White is interested in booking a fight between Masvidal and one of the aforementioned names.
