Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal is continuing to soak up his newfound time in the spotlight.
In a video posted by TMZ Sports on Monday, “Gamebred” is encountered in true TMZ fashion by a cameraman who compliments Masvidal on his January blowout stoppage of “Cowboy” Donald Cerrone, before asking Masvidal's thoughts on Demian Maia, who Masvidal faces on May 13 at UFC 211 in Dallas.
“I'ma f--- him up, man. Those are my thoughts,” Masvidal muses while removing his sunglasses in melodramatic fashion.
“I'm not a classic striker, man, you don't know nothing about me,” Masvidal responds to the suggestion his bout with Maia was a “classic striker versus grappler match-up.”
“I can wrestle my ass off, I ain't got nothing to worry about. I'm betting the house on this. I been calling Dana to see if he'll take a $200K bet, but he hasn't taken it yet.”
The 32-year-old American Top Team product has rebounded from a pair of contentious split decision losses to Benson Henderson and Lorenz Larkin by going on a three-fight winning streak. Since last July, Masvidal has dominated Ross Pearson, Jake Ellenberger and most recently Cerrone, who he toppled in just six minutes flat.
