UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal has come forward to detail his near physical altercation with former middleweight champion Michael Bisping back at UFC Fight Night 122 in Shanghai, China.
Bisping and Masvidal have had a few verbal altercations in the past, as “Gamebred” has not much cared for Bisping ever since the former title holder tore up a small Cuban flag during Yoel Romero’s interim title fight against Robert Whittaker.
When Bisping and Masvidal crossed paths at UFC Fight Night 122 in China, things nearly became violent. Speaking on the latest edition of The MMA Hour, as seen within the video below, Masvidal offered a few words on the matter.
“I was pretty close to breaking his face when we were brought out in China.” Masvidal said.
“After he got knocked out, I didn’t even want to look at the guy.” Masvidal later stated. “I’m not the type of dude to kick someone while they’re down. We’ll handle out problems later, racist piece of sh*t.”
Revealing that Reed Harris was one of a few to keep the two fighters from entering a physical altercation, Masvidal said “He should send a gift basket to Reed Harris at some point, thanking him for his life.”
