Jorge Masvidal on fighting Neil Magny: ‘The only thing he’s fighting is diabetes’

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender, Neil Magny, is still hoping to secure a fight for this summer, and won’t rule out rematches against Stephen Thompson and Demian Maia, who both topped “Gamebred” by close decision.

One person he won’t fight is Neil Magny, and that, according to the American Top Team (ATT) veteran, “is a fact.”

“The only thing he’s fighting is diabetes, but he ain’t fighting me, that skinny anorexic motherfucker,” Masvidal told MMA Junkie.

Masvidal (32-13) and Magny (21-6) have beef dating back to 2017, when Magny was struck down by vaginitis. He eventually recovered and they were expected to throw hands at the UFC Liverpool event back in May, but the “unprofessional slob” couldn't make weight in time.

Magny went on to beat late-replacement Craig White and is expected to return to the Octagon later this year, but it appears it won’t be against Masvidal, thanks to those damn blood sugar levels.
