When MMA fans reflect on what could be the biggest scheduled fight in the UFC, many would say it’s Conor “Notorious” McGregor vs. Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal. Both men are proven pay-per-view stars and have a fighting style that would ensure fireworks. If the two were locked inside the Octagon, fans would likely witness a striking war with all of the action and storyline that they could handle.

When considering how a fight between the two UFC stars would unfold, a common point of analysis is Masvidal’s size advantage. Gamebred is a natural welterweight, whereas McGregor is a natural lightweight. UFC president Dana White has gone on record to say that he believes Gamebred is too big for Notorious.

One fan has attempted to prove that the size disparity isn’t a big deal and they brought receipts to bolster their opinion. The Twitter user “SoberConor” posted a thread showing moments in Masvidal’s past fights where he has been stung or dropped by a left hand. If there is one thing McGregor is known for inside the cage, it’s the menacing power he produces with his left.

The Twitter thread aims to show that Masvidal could be susceptible to being clipped by Notorious. SoberConor wrote: “Thread of Masvidal getting tagged or dropped by left hands. I can already smell the hate from the journeyman Jorge fans.” Here is the thread:

SoberConor shared a few clips of Gamebred being tagged by a few right hands as well.

A Fight Between McGregor & Masvidal Remains Unlikely for Now

In June, Notorious announced his retirement from the sport. It was his third retirement in four years, and judging by his recent vacationing in Western Europe, McGregor has seemingly made good on his promise, at least for the near future.

Masvidal, who just lost to UFC welterweight champ Kamaru Usman, has made it clear that he wants a rematch with the champ and is not pursuing a fight with McGregor at this time.

Although the two fighters are not on a collision course as of right now, it may not take much for the two to set their sights on each other.


Masvidal Last Competed This Month When He Fought Kamaru Usman for the Welterweight Title

Although McGregor is retired from MMA, Masvidal just competed in the most important fight of his life. He took on Usman in the main event of UFC 251 on July 11 for the welterweight title. Gamebred took the match on six days notice as the No. 1 contender, Gilbert Burns, had to pull out of the fight with Usman after testing positive for COVID-19.

It was a losing affair for Masvidal. He came out strong, winning the first round on many viewers’ scorecards. However, Gamebred was not able to sufficiently deal with Usman’s pressure and grappling prowess, and he lost the fight by unanimous decision. The results of the fight card can be seen below:
