Jorge Masvidal ate pizza, drank liquor, and called Conor McGregor “a f—ing midget” at a press conference after dominating Nate Diaz at UFC 244.
Masvidal won every round in Saturday night’s main event at Madison Square Garden in New York City, popping his fists into Diaz’s face with such consistency that the Californian was bloodied, cut, and told by a doctor that he could not continue. The fight was over.
The crowd may have booed at the result, wanting a more conclusive finish, but there was little more Masvidal could have done, as the Floridian fighter dropped Diaz multiple times, kicked him in the body, punched him on the ground, and was declared the “baddest motherf—er” in the game. He was even given a “BMF” belt by The Rock.
Speaking with the media immediately after the win, Masvidal celebrated with food and drink.
After multiple slices of pizza and sips of mezcal, he turned his attention to the Irish striker McGregor, who had been active on social media through the week, doubting Masvidal and Diaz were BMFs and saying he was the coolest in the game.
Now make me a coolest motherfucker belt also.

“I don’t know man, that dude’s been talking wild,” Masvidal said of McGregor. “If he fights and gets a victory and wants this … I’ll f— that little guy up, man. He’s a f—ing midget.
“Dana White, president of this motherf—ing company, said I’m too much man for him,” Masvidal said. “I get it why people want to see him hurt, for those stunts he’s been pulling. But he don’t want this. He’s just talking to get his name out there.
“He was cheering with Nate, he wanted to run it back with Nate, you think he’s at home saying, ‘I want to fight that dude.’ That dude ain’t retarded. He punches old people in the face because those are fights that he could win. He don’t want this s—.”
