“Conor has told me that he definitely wants to face Masvidal,” White said. “Then we’ll see what happens.”

Hey @BurgerKing, could I get a 3 piece with soda and a side chicken box please? Loads of salt and vinegar. Thanks

“I’m not a bully,” said Masvidal. “I will not be one of those cyberstalkers. If you don’t want to fight, we won’t fight. If you want to fight, I’m licking my ribs. Let’s do it big. Do you know what I am talking about?
Over the years, we have learned that in MMA everything can happen. So we just have to wait to see if this will take place within the next few months.
