UFC 211: Jorge Masvidal decked out in all black for ‘premeditated murder’ against Demian Maia (Video)

Welcome to your worst nightmare.

Top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender Demian Maia will attend his own funeral when he collides with surging 170-pound scrapper Jorge Masvidal at the upcoming UFC 211 pay-per-view (PPV) event scheduled for this Saturday night (May 13, 2017) inside American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

That’s why “Gamebred” was all decked out in black during the UFC 211 media day, to signify the “premeditated murder” against his “sucked out” opponent, who was “stupid” enough to take this fight in “Big D.”

Masvidal elaborates to MMA Fighting:

“When we get dressed up in Miami and we going out, it’s premeditated murder. The current state he’s in, he looks fragile. He’s cutting a lot of weight, I saw him earlier on, he’s looking sucked out already. Not that he won’t be able to make weight, but I can tell he’s hurtin’. I’m not gonna sleep on him or nothin’, I just know right now, currently, he’s hurtin’. If I can get by Maia and I’m not fightin’ for the title ... I’m speechless. If I don’t get a title shot, I guess I’d have to get a sex tape with a famous celebrity and then all of the sudden, I got title shots at every weight class. That’s kinda like ‘ho shit,’ ya’ know? I’m here to fight.”

I guess that’s what “XXX violence” means.

Masvidal (32-11) racked up three straight victories to insert himself back into the 170-pound title hunt. The extremely-confident “Gamebred” has never looked better, planishing Jake Ellenberger and Donald Cerrone in recent back-to-back technical knockout wins.

So, about that $200k bet...
