Speculations that a Conor McGregor vs Jorge Masvidal match was going to take place were the talk of the town for quite some time now. However, Masvidal has now formally issued a challenge to McGregor and it will be interesting to see if the Irishman accepts his challenge! Let us take a closer look at this rivalry and who would win if a rematch were to take place.
I will love to see Jorge Masvidal end Conor McGregor’s ufc career for good 👊🏽 @GamebredFighter 🇨🇺

Conor McGregor vs Jorge Masvidal: The Story so Far
Masvidal faced Nate Diaz and defeated him at the main event of UFC 244 at the Madison Square Garden. McGregor had earlier commented that he would like to face the winner of UFC 244 at some point after his return and that he hoped that Nate Diaz would win this fight. While Diaz lost, McGregor and Masvidal have been involved in some trash talk over the past few weeks but Masvidal has now challenged McGregor and asked him if he would like to actually face him inside the Octagon!
It will be interesting to see if Conor McGregor accepts his invitation and this fight is made official. However, we do not expect any announcement to be made before McGregor’s UFC 246 opponent is revealed (most likely to be Cowboy Donald Cerrone).
How do people think a Mcgregor and Masvidal would actually go ahead.

Who Would Win McGregor vs Masvidal
If this fight between Conor McGregor vs Jorge Masvidal were to indeed take place it would actually be in the favour of McGregor because first off, Masvidal would have to drop down to Conor’s weight class and McGregor will be relatively fresher and is also younger and more agile compared to Masvidal. Hence, Conor McGregor is a favourite to win this fight.
